    It was rather tasty and filling. I used cheddar instead of mozzarella, though.  -  02 Mar 2011


    I changed the ingredients slightly as I used chorizo and sprinkled herbed cheese on top (as well as the mozzarella). Really quick, especially as I didn't need to cook the sausages beforehand  -  10 Feb 2012


    I am not going to say this is the most amazing meal and you must try, from the list of ingredients and the simplicity of this recipe you know that will not be true, but it’s a good base if like me you have ingredients that need using up and rather short of time. I followed the recipe exactly only adding mushrooms and onions to the skillet when cooking the sausage, glad I did for the extra flavor and texture. My Gnocchi was cooked to perfection and the meal was ok, nothing spectacular. Not sure its something I would make again in a hurry, if I did I think I would use mature cheddar cheese instead of Mozzarella for extra taste.  -  21 Feb 2010
