  • 1 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 8 oz. Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 1 pound store-bought gnocchi
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 3 cups chopped kale
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for garnishing
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice


  • Add the olive oil to a large heavy-bottomed stock pot or Dutch oven set over medium heat. Add the sausage and cook it, breaking it apart with a spatula, until it is fully cooked, about 5 minutes.
  • Using a slotted spoon, transfer the sausage to a bowl and set it aside.
  • Add the gnocchi to the pot and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the chicken stock and bring the mixture to a boil then reduce it to a simmer and cook until the gnocchi are tender, about 2 minutes.
  • Stir in the kale and cook until tender and wilted, about 2 minutes. 
  • Stir in the Parmesan cheese and then the cooked sausage. 
  • Remove the pot from the heat, and then stir in the lemon juice. Garnish with Parmesan cheese and serve.
