It’s time for a serious self-esteem, kitchen-confidence, OMG I AM SUCH A GOOD COOK boost! Italian Sausage Butternut Squash Gnocchi. It’s an easy recipe that cooks in one pan, but the moment you take a bite, you will want to hire yourself to be head chef in an Italian restaurant.

I’ve become more confident in the kitchen over the years and feel like I more or less know what to expect when I approach a recipe. Every now and then, however, a recipe will catch me off guard in a very very good way. This Italian Sausage Butternut Squash Gnocchi is one of those recipes.
I mean, I didn’t think it was going to be bad by any means. Butternut squash (my fave fall veg), Italian sausage (all things good), and gnocchi (pure comfort food) are all involved. Add some butter and a handful of Parmesan cheese, and you have a dinner dream team.
I was not, however, expecting this simple sausage and vegetable gnocchi to blow me away like it did.
I took a bite and had to pause to ask myself if I had really made it.
I suppose we are all allowed to blow ourselves away in the kitchen now and then, but my goal has always been for other people to feel that way about a recipe. This Italian Sausage and Butternut Squash Gnocchi made me feel that way about myself. It was a cool sensation, and I can’t wait for you to try it and experience it too! (more…)
