One Pan Cheesy Baked Gnocchi

I just love one pan meals. My husband will tell you right away that doing dishes is my least favorite chore in the world even though I am guilty of dirtying tons of them in recipe testing. So making a one pan pasta recipe for dinner is basically my favorite since, um, it’s pasta and also much less clean up. The fact that it is a one pan cheesy baked gnocchi recipe makes me doubly happy because to me there is nothing like pillowy gnocchi. So in short, this was a dream dinner and so easy to make!

I started with sautéing lots of hearty veggies. There was cubed up butternut squash, sliced mushrooms, onion, garlic and lots of sage for fantastic flavor.
After that, I just added in tomato paste, red wine, canned tomato sauce, milk and chicken stock. It was really a simple and quick sauce! I let it simmer for just a few minutes.
Finally, I added in lots of sweet potato gnocchi, parmesan and freshly grated smoked gouda cheese. Oh my word, the smoked gouda really made this dish. So did the sweet potato gnocchi. All of those flavors mixed with the spices I added really made it cozy and comforting.
When that one pan cheesy baked gnocchi came out of the oven, oh my gosh it was a melty, fragrant thing of pure beauty. Just look at all of that cheesy goodness! I just served it right from the pan.

This was truly everything I could want in a dinner. Like I said, those spices, the gnocchi and smoked cheese really made it so cozy and satisfying. It was still leaner and nutritious and vegetarian though. Hope you all love it too! xoxo

  • 1 dash olive oil
  • 10 ounces butternut squash diced small
  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms thinly sliced
  • 1 whole onion finely diced
  • 3 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh sage roughly chopped, plus additional for sprinkling on top
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons red wine
  • 16 ounces canned tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable stock
  • 1 pound sweet potato gnocchi
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 8 ounces freshly grated smoked gouda
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350. Get out a large, deep oven safe skillet and heat the olive oil in it over medium high heat. Add the butternut squash and mushrooms and let them soften for a couple of minutes. Then add the onion, garlic and sage. Let them get fragrant for another minute while you season everything with the cinnamon, turmeric, cumin and salt. Stir in the tomato paste and wine next and let it cook for another minute. Finally, pour in the tomato sauce, milk and vegetable stock. Let it gently simmer for 5 minutes, then stir in the sweet potato gnocchi. Let it cook in the sauce for another couple of minutes while you sprinkle in the parmesan and gouda on top. Transfer the pan to the oven and let it bake for 15 minutes to make the cheese bubbly. Sprinkle the extra sage on top and serve immediately with crusty bread!
