TJ’s Cauliflower Gnocchi w/ Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken Sausage

The new Trader Joe’s item that has taken over Instagram…..Cauliflower Gnocchi!  But after trying it, I have to agree that the hype is real! I am obsessed and had to buy multiple bags my second time because I knew I would be craving it.

There are so many different ways you can make it including pesto sauce, pasta sauce, etc. but I honestly think a little olive oil and some seasoning goes a long way. This recipe gives the gnocchi a crisp outside and leaves the middle gooey and delicious.

I highly recommend getting your hands on this gnocchi and give this recipe a try! I’ve had it for multiple days straight because it is THAT good.

It’s a pretty simple recipe to follow although the gnocchi can get pretty sticky so make sure to use enough olive oil to keep it from ruining your pan.

Serving Size: 2


  • One bag Cauliflower Gnocchi
  • 2 Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken Sausage (Trader Joe’s)
  • 1-2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Water
  • 1 Bag Steams Eye Broccoli & Cauliflower
  • 5 Sliced Roma Tomatos
  • Garlic Powder
  • Onion Powder
  • Parsley Flakes


  1. Place frozen gnocchi in a medium sized pan over medium heat. Add 1 tbsp olive oil and a flash of water. Cover and let cook for 6-8 minutes.
  2. Break up any clumps of gnocchi as it is VERY sticky sometimes. Continue to sauté gnocchi until golden brown on each side.
  3. In another small pan over medium heat add the chicken sausage and grill for 3-4 minutes on each side until crisp. Also add chopped Roma tomato to get a crisp outside.
  4. If you haven’t already, cook the vegetable bag in the microwave for 5-6 minutes. (I’m all about convenience and this is quickest)
  5. You may need to add more olive oil to the pan if gnocchi is sticking to the pan.
  6. Reduce gnocchi pan to low and add chicken sausage & vegetables. Sprinkle with garlic powder, onion powder & parsley flakes.
  7. Serve in desired dish!
