  1. Heat the oil in a large high-sided frying pan over a medium heat. Squeeze the sausages straight from their skins into the pan, then use the back of a wooden spoon to break the meat up. Sprinkle in the chilli flakes and fennel seeds, if using, then fry until the sausagemeat is crisp around the edges. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon.

  2. Tip the gnocchi into the pan, fry for a minute or so, then pour in the chicken stock. Once bubbling, cover the pan with a lid and cook for 3 mins, then stir in the kale. Cook for 2 mins more or until the gnocchi is tender and the kale has wilted. Stir in the parmesan, then season with black pepper and scatter the crisp sausagemeat over the top.

It is nice and easy recipe however nothing too exciting about the taste of it.

Very nice. I think I was slightly heavy-handed with the fennel seeds, which dominated the flavour a bit. Next time I'll either go lighter or miss them out altogether. But there will definitely be a next time.

My daughter’s loved this. I didn’t add the fennel seeds but did add a clove of garlic to the sausage meat. Very nice dinner!

Surprisingly good! and was so quick to make. I had caraway seeds instead and added some asparagus - a touch of garlic powder too.

A great new way to try gnocchi, added garlic to the sausage meat for some extra flavour. Really tasty.

Surprisingly tasty. I had some chicken gravy left over from Sunday lunch so used that instead of stock, and fried off a bit of red chilli with the sausage. Used spring greens. Simple, easy meal

This is now a firm favourite! Great recipe, we added some fresh garlic at the end of frying the sausage and used Cavolo Nero as we had no kale. Very tasty and great flavour combo.

Really good, quick, and tasty recipe! But if you're substituting chilli flakes for powder like I did, I'd suggest skipping or only adding a little pepper.
