This recipe was a surprise hit and too good not to share! I think it is a great winter or fall recipe – warm, hearty and packed with flavor. Oh and this dressing/sauce goes great on a lot of dishes. Without further-a-do here is my gnocchi and sausage with dijon mustard recipe.

Gnocchi and Sausage with Dijon Mustard Recipe


  • 1.75 lb package of gnocchi (Costco baby)

Gnocchi and Sausage with Dijon Mustard Recipe

We always start with the chopping. So get your veggies chopped to your size preference and slice up the sausage. Then fill your pot with water for boiling the gnocchi because at some point we will be boiling gnocchi, sautéing our veggies and sausage, and whisking the dressing. 

Once you are set put some olive oil in your large skillet and start sautéing the veggies. I put everything in at once and mix regularly. Read the package of gnocchi – most don’t cook for very long. But you will want to get your water boiling when you are about halfway done with the sauté process (probably 5-7 minutes). 

Note – If I wasn’t serving this to a toddler I would add red pepper flakes to the veggies while they sauté.

While the water is boiling and your veggie mix is cooking whisk together the dressing by combining the hummus, dijon mustard and lemon juice. Add about 1/2 -1 TBSP of oil to the dressing as you whisk – adjusting based on consistency. Add some fresh cracked black pepper and sea salt and you are done. 

Once you have drained your gnocchi toss them in roughly 2/3 of the dressing to coat. Serve by layering the veggies and sausage over the gnocchi. Topping with a drizzle of the dressing, feta and red pepper flakes (if you like a bit of heat). 

Change up the veggies as you wish – I think this would be great with a pan of roasted veggies like chopped brussel sprouts, carrots and onions. I hope you enjoy this gnocchi and sausage with dijon mustard recipe!
