Sausage Spinach Gnocchi Alfredo

I was out of ideas for dinner last night and decided to just dig through what we had to put something together. After going through the fridge, freezer, and pantry I ended up with this. It actually turned out really well. I've made Spinach Sausage Gnocchi before with fresh spinach and it was good but all I had was frozen. So I used the frozen spinach and prepared it just a little differently. Also, I had 3/4 of a jar of Alfredo sauce inthe fridge (not sure what I used 1/4 of the jar on) but I added that too. And here is the result...

Spinach Sausage Gnocchi Alfredo

1pkg of shelf stable Gnocchi

1 lb of pork sausage

1 box of frozen spinach

1 jar of prepared Alfredo Sauce

1/4 Cup of fat free 1/2 & 1/2

1/4 lb of grated Parmesan

Brown the sausage over medium-hugh heat. While the sausage is cooking, defrost spinach and squeeze out excess moisture. Add spinach to sausage with 1/2 of the Alfredo sauce. and then set aside.

Boil gnocchi just until done. Rreserve 3/4Cup of cooking liquid and then drain.

Combine gnocchi with spinach & sausage mixture and add remaining Alfredo sauce as well as 1/2 & 1/2 into an 8"x8" baking dish. Top with grated parmesan and bake at 350 degrees for 1/2 hour.
