Okay the other night I made dinner and didn't share with you what I made. I didn't want to tease anyone with the food because I wasn't planning on sharing the recipe. I made manicotti with homemade sauce (I have never shared this recipe) which leads me into tonight's dinner.
I had some tomato puree and some ricotta cheese that I didn't use all of for the dish the other night. So I decided I wanted to use the leftovers so that it wouldn't go to waste.
I took some italian sausage links that I sliced before cooking. I cooked the sausage until done and then added the puree to the same pan along with fresh garlic and a number of spices to give it flavor. I bought the other day at the store some potato and basil gnocchi, so I cooked it according to the instructions and then once cooked I added it to the sausage, tomato mixture. I then stirred in the ricotta cheese and cooked until warm.
I also made a small tossed salad to go with dinner and some leftover garlic bread.
