Sweet Potato Gnocchi Dinner - Dash Of Mandi

First of all, Trader Joe’s never ceases to amaze me. I’ve been a huge fan of their frozen cauliflower gnocchi for the longest time now. Click here for my blog post for all things cauliflower gnocchi! How to cook it three different ways and a bunch of ways to eat it! You can find a lot of different recipes on my Instagram (@dashofmandi) – I just love how versatile it is. However, this frozen sweet potato gnocchi is phenomenal. It comes in a sage butter sauce which is rich and cozy.

Some of my other Fall favorites from Trader Joe’s are pumpkin butter (it’s seriously SO amazing), pumpkin cranberry crisps, pumpkin butternut squash bisque, maple pecan cookie mix (top with pumpkin butter and thank me later), and apple cider jam. I could go nuts in there, and I feel like every time I go in (which is a lot) there’s always a new product!

Click here for ALL of my current Trader Joe’s favorites. So many people tell me they find the store very overwhelming so I figured this might help them navigate it better. There is definitely so much going on in there with all the new products flowing in constantly. But, once you figure out what’s good it becomes much more enjoyable!

I love this gnocchi on it’s own, but I wanted to make a balanced dinner with it. In addition to the sweet potato gnocchi, I paired it with brussel sprouts and chicken apple sausage. As a result, this dinner is heavenly. Probably because this combination screams Fall and I love it. If you want this meal to be meatless, just the brussel sprouts and gnocchi would be good too!

Trader Joe's Sheet Pan Meal

So, not only is this dinner delicious – but it’s also incredibly easy. Just throw a few items onto a sheet pan and toss it in the oven. Consequently, it’s perfect for back to school/ busy week-nights. No sink full of dirty dishes with this recipe! There’s no reason not to put it on your weekly dinner rotation.

    I WAS A LITTLE NERVOUS TO BAKE THIS GNOOCHI ON A SHEET PAN SINCE THE SAUCE is pretty thick but this gave me the idea to try it in the oven! I love the combo of these three together for my meal preps!

    used broccoli instead of brussel sprouts since my husband can’t stand them. this was absolutely delicious … hubby kept picking the ingredients out of the bowl, especially the gnoccHi and sausage. he said it was “addicting” – never heard him say that before!


    So delicious and So easy. This dish is a crowd-pleaseR!


    Run, don’t walk to Trader Joes to get the ingredients for this recipe!! It’s so good. I was unsure about putting the gnocchi in the oven but i’m so glad I did! It turned out perfectly. I put the Brussels sprouts in a separate dish to cook them a little longer because I personally like mine extra crispy (also my sheet pan is a little small). Love the minimal ingredients and how easy this is. Definitely making this again!


    So good and so easy!


    One of the easiest week night recipes! My boyfriend and i love this one. The flavors of the brussels, sp gnocchi & sWeet apple chicken sausage are The Perfect mix. I’ve used other flavors of chicken sausage, but the sweet apple is the best.


    soooo easy and sooo good! i would have never thought to put these things together but they deserve eachother! i always save some to put an egg over the next day <3


    This recipe iS delIcious! Makes for a perfect and quiCk meal! I SUBSTITUTED cauliflower gnocchi and vegan sausage to make it a vegan entrée. it was great!


    This is my new go to when i don’t haVe much time to cook or prep! It is all my TJ fAVorites and so easy to just throw in the oven.


    This is my new favorite meal to make. So yummy, so quick and easy, and so FIlling. Perfect for leftovers also.


    My go-to quick and easy dinner idea! I Keep all three inGredients on hand at all times for whenever i need a lOw stress, yummy meal. So fast, easy, and delicious!
