Easy to make, using packaged gnocchi. Serve with a green salad and crusty bread. I used pork sausage, but you could use the hot italian turkey links.

Ingredients

8 oz
italian pork sausage (two 4 oz. links)
1 Tbsp
olive oil
1
shallot, peeled and minced
2 c
water
1 can(s)
(14 oz.) beef broth
1 can(s)
(14.5 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained

1
Do not remove casings from links. Cook sausage in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat until just browned, turning them over once. Remove from pan and let cool slightly on a cutting board. Slice links into 1/4 inch slices.
2
Add oil to the same pot and stir in shallot and garlic and cook until the shallot begins to soften.
3
Add water, broth, tomatoes (and their juice), and tomato paste; bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes.
4
Add sliced links, gnocchi and spinach and cook until the gnocchi float to the top, about 8-10 minutes.
5
Stir in cream and season with salt and pepper, if needed.
6
Ladle into 4 bowls and top each with 1/8 cup grated Parmesan. Serve -
