Sheet Pan Gnocchi & Kielbasa

Sheet Pan Gnocchi and Kielbasa -- A quick and easy dinner that is healthy!

Sheet pan dinners are effortless to make and delicious! The variations that can be made with these meals are endless. Rather you roast colorful bell peppers, onions, carrots, or green beans, any vegetable can be incorporated! This simple meal is tossed in olive oil and garlic for additional flavor and roasted to perfection in just 30 minutes!

An easy dinner is a treat in our home. We were surprised to learn that gnocchi doesn’t always have to be boiled to be delicious. Gnocchi is something that isn’t a weekly staple in our house, but the pillow soft potato balls are even delicious roasted! Adding these to the sheet pan dinner was the perfect combination with kielbasa and roasted vegetables!

 

A large mixing bowl is perfect to perfectly add the additional flavors.

 

I included an array of vegetables because our refrigerator was full and many needed to be used. I used baby carrots, green beans, broccoli, green peppers, and zucchini for our sheet pan. Start by removing the ends of the green beans, cutting the zucchini in 1/2 inch chunks, chopping the green peppers into chunks or slices, and breaking apart the broccoli. I used Whole Wheat Gnocchi and Turkey Kielbasa for this recipe. Add the gnocchi and sliced kielbasa into a large mixing bowl with the vegetables and add 2 tablespoons of minced garlic and drizzle with olive oil.

I also like to just combine everything on my sheet pan, drizzle with olive oil, then sprinkle the garlic across the top. This will minimize your dishes even more!

If you used a mixing bowl, spread across the sheet pan and place in the oven for 25-30 minutes on 400 degrees, or until veggies are tender and your gnocchi has a crispy outside. Zucchini does soften when it is cooked, so it will have more of a soft texture than the rest of the vegetables. Carrots do have a longer cook time than the broccoli and green beans as well. We like crunchy roasted carrots, so they were perfect for this recipe. However, if you do not like your roasted carrots crunchy, substitute them for a different vegetable like tomato chunks or purple onion chunks.

Sheet pan dinners are perfect for quick meals!

 

Serve and Enjoy!
