 Ingredients List

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3/4 lb Italian sausage mild, casings removed
  • 1 large leek chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper freshly ground, or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 28 oz crushed tomatoes (1 can)
  • 1 lb potato gnocchi
  • Optional
  • Parmesan cheese freshly grated


In a large skillet heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the Italian sausage and cook until no longer pink, breaking it up with a wooden spoon. It should take about 3 to 5 minutes.
Add the leeks, thyme, parsley, garlic, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes and stir. Cook for another 3 minutes until leeks soften.
Stir in the crushed tomatoes, bring to a boil then simmer for about 20 minutes until the sauce thickens and reduces. There should be no liquid left, it should be a nice thick sauce.
While the sauce is reducing, cook the gnocchi according to package instructions.
Add the gnocchi to the sauce and stir. Serve while warm, and garnish with grated Parmesan cheese, if preferred.
