Fear No Food: Homemade Sausage and Peppers Gnocchi

Fear No Food: Homemade Sausage and Peppers Gnocchi

Hello friends!

For today’s Fear No Food post, I thought we’d get right down to the main event:

homemade gnocchi.

The closest I’ve ever come to homemade gnocchi would have to be that post I did on Chicken Pot Pie Gnocchi, but those little dumplings were made with instant mashed potatoes (a brilliant idea from The Novice Chef Blog).

I remember the first time I ever had gnocchi. My family and I had just finished seeing Spamalot on Broadway (my first and only Broadway experience) and had ducked into a little restaurant to grab dinner. I couldn’t tell you the name of the place, but I remember spying a dish called “Gnocchi Bolognese” and thinking to myself:


  • 2 lbs russet potatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups flour, plus extra for rolling
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 lb sweet Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 1 large onion, sliced thinly
  • 2 large red bell peppers, de-seeded and sliced thinly
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 cup Guinness Stout
  • 3/4 cup chicken stock
  • 2 tbsp flour
