Today I am conjuring up a new recipe with mostly Italian ingredients.  Since my base consists of potato gnocchi, Wayne has dubbed this dish, Nucky (of Boardwalk Empire.)  Gotta love that guy.


4 packs of potato gnocchi
2 jars your favorite marinara sauce
5 links hot Italian sausage ~ grilled and cut in cubes
fresh parmesan and oregano
4 types of cheese ~ I'm going universal and grated:
 Spanish manchego 
Italian truffle
  Wisconsin sharp cheddar
Italian parmesan

Boil gnocchi as directed, rinse and drain, smother in butter, oregano and parmesan cheese.  Set aside.  In a lightly oiled baking pan, add marinara sauce, gnocchi, cheeses and fresh oregano.  Bake at 350 for one hour, remove foil and cook for 15 more minutes. 

Please note this is definitely not a heart healthy meal but once in awhile we need to indulge.  Enjoy. xo
