Twenty minute spinach gnocchi sausage is the perfect meal for when you need dinner in a hurry.
Twenty Minute Spinach Gnocchi Sausage

I’m off to sunny California today for a weekend with other food bloggers in Temecula.  It will be my first time attending this Big Traveling Potluck but I’m pretty dang excited because I’m meeting up with some of my favorite food blogging friends.  This week has been a bit hectic for me with planning and prepping for trip plus leaving Olivia.  My husband is going on an annual motorcycle ride in the hill country so he won’t be around either.  I know she will be in great hands but I can still worry right?

Well dinner has been interesting for us lately because I’ve been making an array of things for the blog and for freelance work.  It seems that nothing paired together and we were just having a buffet of total random dishes.  I finally put one meal together that didn’t need to be paired with anything else except maybe a glass of wine. (Hint, hint)

Twenty Minute Spinach Gnocchi Sausage

This dinner was easy to whip together and I even had time for photos without a starving husband and toddler.  Oh the joys of photographing food during meal times.  Have a good weekend!

Enjoy ~ Meagan

    For some reason I have about 4 packs of gnocchi in my pantry. This would be a delicious way to use up some of it. I love the flavor combination.

    The Gnocchi looks super amazing! I hope you have a fantastic time at the conference, I had so wanted to go to it but work is just too busy, and so the conference I am able to go to is the BlogHer Food conference in Miami…are you going to that one by chance?
