Why you will love this
This one-skillet dinner checks all the boxes: very little prep work, quick-cooking, easy clean-up, and most importantly - it's delicious. Polish sausage is often served with pierogies, but this dish is made with gnocchi. I like serving this dish with a side of sour cream and dijon mustard.
How to make
Prep is easy. Slice the kielbasa and the onion. Saute the kielbasa until browned. Remove. Then saute the onions and the gnocchi until onion is soft and gnocchi is lightly brown. Add kielbasa back in, toss together and serve.
This quick and easy recipe is perfect for busy weeknights but is also hearty enough for snowy weekend comfort food. I'm excited for you to try this recipe.

I'm so happy you enjoyed it! Thank you for trying this recipe!
I was skeptical about this recipe, I didn’t want to run to the store and had all the ingredients, so I gave it a try.
It is my family’s new favorite weeknight recipe. We all loved it, even my picky eaters. I used smoked polish from butcher shop.
I'm so happy you enjoyed the recipe!
Do you boil gnocchi first? OR just sautee?
I used shelf-stable gnocchi which only needs to be sauteed. If using fresh gnocchi, also just saute. If using frozen gnocchi, I recommend cooking according to package directions, drain, then add to the saute pan.
Thanks for the tips, my first time using gnocchi. : )
Thank you! I hope you enjoyed the recipe!
