Throwback Thursday: Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Tomatoes, Capers & Sausage

"Throwback Thursday: Taking you back through the past 6 years by highlighting some of my favorite blog posts"

We have pasta at least once a week; which means I'm always on the look out for new weeknight friendly recipes to try.

I found the recipe below online and just happened to have sweet potato gnocchi in the pantry. I know it's an odd thing to just happen to have...but it's true.

This sauce is a keeper.  Quick, easy and delicious.  If you don't happen to have sweet potato gnocchi laying around I think the sauce would go equally well with just about any pasta. Try it for yourself and let me know.

Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Capers, Tomatoes, and Italian Sausage
Adapted from Pasta Sfoglia - Serves 2
(printable recipe)

2 cups of sweet potato gnocchi
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 clove of garlic, thinly sliced
1/4 tablespoon of capers, washed
1 link of mild Italian sausage, cut into small pieces
1 cup of diced tomatoes
splash of white wine
salt and pepper
1/4 cup of pasta water
1. olive oil to skillet and heat. Add garlic, sausage, and capers and cook for 3-4 minutes. Add the tomatoes, salt, pepper, and wine. Cook for 2 minutes. Take off heat and cover.

2. Bring a pot of well salted water to a boil. Add the gnocchi. They will sink to the bottom. After the gnocchi rise to the surface, let them cook a minute more. Scoop them out with a wire mesh skimmer or what-have-you and put on plates or bowls.

3. Add pasta water to the tomato mixture and stir. Pour over hot gnocchi and serve
