Sausage Gnocchi soup is one of these go-tos for super quick meals when you are on the move. It is great for nights where you need hot, filling food between schoolwork and soccer matches. The recipe is forgiving. You have add different kinds of broths. You could use turkey sausage instead of pork. Even mild sausage over hot. Different cans of tomatoes. If you don’t have gnocchi, then swap out another pasta. It is up to you and it will all taste good.
I prefer hot Italian turkey sausage, it is not easily found where I live. So I use the hot Italian pork sausage. Both work well. I like using beef broth in this recipe; because, it gives the broth with the canned Italian tomatoes a richness while hot Italian sausage brings some heat. While it is quick dump and bring to a boil soup, it is best to start it earlier allowing the flavors to blend waiting the last moment to put in the gnocchi. Sometimes if you leave the gnocchi in there too long, it gets a gummy texture.
Enjoy this simple and satisfying soup on a busy fall evening when everything is going on.
