This gnocchi in tomato sauce with sausage are an adaptation of the media Jamie Oliver, who may be criticized for some things but has very inspiring books and programs. We already know that he likes to take ideas from Italian cuisine, and not just to prepare pasta.
The book that inspired me was a Christmas gift, ‘ Jamie Meals in 15 Minutes ‘, which has very good varied proposals to get ideas. I had not prepared gnocchi for a long time, so I only had to adapt the recipe a bit. Of course, I give myself a little more time to cook, nor do we have to go in such a hurry between stoves.
Remove the skin from the sausages and chop them. Chop the green pepper into small pieces, discarding the seeds and filaments. Heat a couple of tablespoons of olive oil in a large pan or casserole and brown the sausages for 2-3 minutes.
Add the pepper and season lightly. Skip 5 minutes. Water with the red wine and let it reduce. Add the crushed tomato, mix well and correct the acidity with the sugar. Season with granulated garlic, cayenne and Provencal herbs.
Cook the gnocchi in boiling water following the instructions on the package. Normally they will be ready when everyone has risen to the surface. Drain and add to the casserole. Alimentary and mix well. Cook everything together for another 5 minutes, monitoring the liquid level.
