When it comes to dinner, EASY, is the name of the game around here during the holiday season! Like you, I’m burning the candle at both ends this holiday season. On top of the normal feverish pie of December we’ve been buying a house, moving, and we adopted a 6-month-old puppy that just happens to be deaf. We’re literally at full capacity over here if it weren’t for easy meals like this Sheet Pan Cauliflower Gnocchi with Apples and Sausage.
This dinner comes together in a flash with only 5 minutes of prep time and items you probably already have on hand in your pantry.
Cauliflower Gnocchi || This stuff has to be a top selling item of the season because our local store can only order 1 case per shipment and they aren’t allowed to hold bags for people, even if they pay in advance! It took me 3 trips to Atlanta to finally score a few bags and now I know why so many people stock their freezers with them. They have a soft pillowy consistency like traditional gnocchi and mild cauliflower flavor, which we just love!
Sausage || My kiddo’s love chicken apple sausage! It’s a bit sweeter than a more traditional Italian Sausage and it plays really nicely with the roasted apples in this sheet pan supper.
Apples || I always have apples on hand for easy snacking, but I also like to use them in savory dishes as well like this Sheet Pan Cauliflower Gnocchi with Apples and Sausage. Stemilt’s Piñata® apples are my go-to for this recipe because I love their sweet-tart taste and they really hold up to the heat of the oven.
Sage || This time of year I’m pretty sure everyone’s crisper drawers are loaded with sage! I hardly used it before outside of the holiday season, but now I have this go-to week night recipe, I’m sure I’ll be stocking lots more of it.
Pesto || Every good meal needs a sauce and this one utilizes store-bought pesto. Dunk it, toss it, or slather it, it doesn’t matter. It’s all delicious!
