So, not only is this Sheet Pan Sweet Potato Gnocchi Dinner with Chicken Sausage and Brussels Sprouts 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.

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! However, this frozen sweet potato gnocchi is also phenomenal – and absolutely perfect for fall!

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.

Trader Joe's Sheet Pan Meal ingredients

Do I have to use sweet potato gnocchi in this recipe? What if I don’t have a Trader Joe’s near me?

I love how much the sweet potato gnocchi makes this dish just scream fall, but any brand of gnocchi will work here. As I mentioned, I love Trader Joe’s cauliflower gnocchi and it would make a great low carb option.

Can I make this Sheet Pan Gnocchi Meal vegetarian?

If you want this meal to be meatless, just the brussel sprouts and gnocchi would be good too!

You really love Trader Joe’s, huh? Any tips for navigating the store? It is always so overwhelming!

So many people tell me they find the store very overwhelming so I figured this post sharing all of my current Trader Joe’s favorites might help you 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!

Some of my other fall favorites at the moment 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!

This easy Sheet Pan Sweet Potato Gnocchi Dinner with Chicken Sausage and Brussels Sprouts is made using simple ingredients you can grab from Trader Joe’s – frozen sweet potato gnocchi, brussel sprouts, and apple chicken sausage! It is the ultimate weeknight sheet pan meal the whole family will love!


  • 1 lb. brussel sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 1 tbsp + 2 tsp olive oil, divided
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 (12 oz.) package Trader Joe’s apple chicken sausage, sliced
  • 1 bag Trader Joe’s frozen sweet potato gnocchi


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper, foil, or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. In a mixing bowl, toss the brussels sprouts with 1 tbsp of the olive oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Arrange on one side of the baking sheet in a single layer.
  4. Add the chicken sausage to the baking sheet in a single layer.
  5. Next, empty the bag of sweet potato gnocchi in the remaining portion of the baking sheet. Drizzle the gnocchi with the remaining 2 tsp of olive oil.
  6. Bake for 22-24 minutes. Toss it and enjoy!


Trader Joe’s frozen sweet potato gnocchi is seasoned with butter and sage – if you are using a different brand without seasonings you may want to add some dried herbs or spices when you toss the brussels sprouts with the olive oil, garlic powder and seasonings.

    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!

    AMAzING!!! One pan meal i couldn’t ask for more and it was so easy and delicious. Thank you!

    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!

    This recipe is a staple iN my house! So easy and delicious. We love it! We use non stick foil and that seems To work the best.


    This is by far my favorite go-to weeknight meal. We use TJ’s garlic herb chicken sausage instead of the apple Chicken sausage to give it a little different taste. this meal is so easy and so delicious!


    Love this recipe! Its one of my go to’s when i donT Know what to make for dinner.


    Super easy and really tasty


    Such a fun twist on the Trader Joe’s gnocchi. I’ve been buying gnocchi from trader joes for so long that it’s refreshing to make it a little more fun every now and then. Thank you!


    This is a good recipe! I told my partner i was making it again this week and he got excited. Love the flavors mixed together. 10/10!

    We tried it with Trader Joes frozen broccoli as another commenter suggested since I wasn’t convinced the kids would do the brussel sprouts. It was a hit.

    Modifications to the time included doing it on 2 pans (one for the broccoli since it was a lot, and one for the gnocchi and sausage). Broccoli was in for probably 27 mins, and the gnocchi and sausage only did about 15 mins.


    This was so good! THank you!

    These recipes sound so good. I am going to get INGREDIENTs and try them. Also going to try soup. Dont care for spinach but am going to learn. Sounds too good to pass up.

    Hey- do you think it would be good with trader joe’s pumpkin GNOCCHI?

      Amanda Hickman

      I havent tried but I know it would need an additional sauce or butter because the frozen sweet potato gnocchi comes with a sauce in it.


    Made exactly as directed. Excellent, Easy, delicious! Can’t wait to make again and again.
