Italian sausage and gnocchi are a natural marriage, not just because they're from the same country and speak the same language. No, the cutting and refreshing spice of the sausage cuts perfectly through the rich, doughy delight that are the little balls of gnocchi. Does tomato sauce make for a third wheel, or is three the charm? We think the latter. This meal is nothing but natural.
