Sausage, Gnocchi, and Kale Sheet Pan Dinner Recipe

Sausage, Gnocchi, and Kale Sheet Pan Dinner

Serves 4

For this recipe, you can use fresh ingredients or shelf-stable options: fresh gnocchi and pesto can be found in the refrigerated section near the deli and shelf-stable gnocchi and pesto are available in the grocery aisle with dried pasta.


  • 4 mild Italian sausage links (pork or chicken)
  • 1 pound gnocchi
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided use
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 bunch curly kale, ribs removed and torn into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup basil pesto


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a large, rimmed sheet pan with oiled foil or parchment paper for easy cleanup.
  2. Place sausages on pan and roast on middle rack 10 minutes.
  3. Remove pan from oven. Flip sausages and move to one side of pan. In a bowl, toss gnocchi with 1 tablespoon olive oil and a pinch or two of salt and pepper. Spread across pan. In the same bowl, toss kale with 1 tablespoon olive oil, salt, and pepper. Add to pan.
  4. Return to oven and roast 7 to 10 minutes or until sausages are cooked through (165°F at center) and gnocchi are hot.
  5. Spoon pesto over gnocchi and kale and toss gently. Serve warm with sausage.
