Sausage bake with gnocchi

Sausage bake with gnocchi

This easy sausage bake is made with gnocchi rather than pasta. Roasted gnocchi is magical – while the inside stays light and fluffy, the outside goes crisp and golden, like mini roast potatoes.


  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and cut into chunks
  • 1 yellow pepper, deseeded and cut into chunks
  • 1 orange pepper, deseeded and cut into chunks
  • 250g/9oz gnocchi
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 pork sausages
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6.

  2. Toss together the peppers, gnocchi, olive oil and a generous amount of salt and pepper on a large baking tray.

  3. Place the sausages on the tray. Roast for 25 minutes, or until the sausages and gnocchi are golden-brown and the peppers are soft and have started to brown around the edges. Serve.

Recipe Tips

Use any vegetables you like. Tomatoes would be a good addition too.
