Hey Mambo..

Mambo Italiano...

We have had some packages of gnocchi in the house for a while and Adam has had a hankering for the spinach ones.

I kind of made dinner up as I went along but it was so tasty and filling. Certainly one I need to add to the recipe mix on a regular basis.

This dinner is certainly one that shows how you can take real items from your kitchen and local stores and make an awesome dinner!

I think I'll call this Spinach Gnocchi with Sausage Meatballs


1 package (dry or frozen - we find the dried cook up fluffier) Gnocchi

1 Jar sauce

1 package ground Italian Sausage, without casings

Pour jar in to pot and season with pepper, garlic powder, and Italian Pasta Sprinkle

In a skillet, on medium high heat, brown the mini meatballs until just firm. Transfer to the sauce and reduce to simmer and cook until done.

Add gnocchi to boiling water and cook until they are floating and light and fluffy.

Top with grated parmesan cheese.
