Sheet Pan Cauliflower Gnocchi with Apples and Sausage

Sheet Pan Cauliflower Gnocchi is all the rage around our family table these days and for good reason, it is freaking DELICIOUS! I honestly didn’t understand what ALL the hype was about Trader Joe’s Cauliflower Gnocchi until I finally got my hand on a bag…and let me tell you when you roast those little babies in a screaming hot oven they turn into crispy little pillowy nuggets that really make my my tastebuds sing!

Trader Joe’s Cauliflower Gnocchi || This stuff has to be Trader Joe’s top selling item of the season because our local store can only order 1 case per shipment and they aren’t allowed to hold bags for people, even if they pay in advance! It took me 3 trips to Atlanta to finally score a few bags and now I know why so many people stock their freezers with them. They have a soft pillowy consistency like traditional gnocchi and mild cauliflower flavor, which we just love!
Sausage || My kiddo’s love chicken apple sausage! It’s a bit sweeter than a more traditional Italian Sausage and it plays really nicely with the roasted apples in this sheet pan supper.
Apples || I always have apples on hand for easy snacking, but I also like to use them in savory dishes as well like this Sheet Pan Cauliflower Gnocchi with Apples and Sausage. Stemilt’s Piñata apples are my go-to for this recipe because I love their sweet tart taste and they really hold up to the heat of the oven.
Sage || This time of year I’m pretty sure everyone’s crisper drawers are loaded with sage! I hardly used it before outside of the holiday season, but now I have this go-to week night recipe I’m sure I’ll be stocking lots more of it.
Pesto || Every good meal needs a sauce and this one utilizes store bought pesto. Dunk it, toss it, or slather it, it doesn’t matter. It’s all delicious!

It’s simple, it’s rustic, but it’s freaking delicious which is what REALLY matters isn’t it?!
