    1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add sausages and cook until browned about 10 minutes. Cut sausages into slices, return to the frying pan, and continue cooking until no longer pink. Transfer to a plate lined with kitchen roll.
    2. Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat; stir in onion and cook until the onion softens, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and 1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning; cook until the garlic softens, about 2 minutes. Pour in tomatoes, water, salt, sugar, and remaining 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.
    3. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add gnocchi and cook for 2 to 3 minutes until the pieces float to the top; drain.
    4. Meanwhile, stir sausage slices into sauce to rewarm. Toss gnocchi with sauce, and sprinkle with chopped parsley and grated cheese to serve.

    Spotted some Gnocchi in Morrisons, having never tried this before, I bought it and then looked up a recipe. It ended up being pretty revolting, it basically just tasted of a tin of tomatoes with onion in and sausages and as for the gnocchi, I might as well have been eating uncooked pastry. Shan't be buying that again in a hurry.  -  10 Oct 2015


    Of course I had to try this one - as my daughter submitted it! Nice, easy family meal. I did add about 1/2 cup of dry red wine. Good recipe, honey.  -  01 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This dish was fantastic! This was my first time having gnocchi. It is great! Not adding the sugar was my only change. Also, A little goes a long way. I looked at the little dish of gnocchi (1 lb) and thought "There's no way this is feeding 3 adults!". It did! - with leftovers! Thanks for the fantastic recipe.  -  10 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
