A paleo recipe that is comforting, healthy and easy to assemble! Gnocchi, Sausage, & Power Greens skillet by Cook At Home Mom is tossed with a super simple butternut squash sauce and requires one pan, 20 minutes, and 5 ingredients. Here, we’re using canned, light coconut milk. But you can use any type you like. Just check the ingredients to be sure it’s paleo-compliant, if that matters to you.

Prep the Ingredients
Cook the gnocchi according to package instructions. Peel and dice the butternut squash.

Cook the Squash
Add the butternut squash and half of the coconut milk to the pan and cover. Steam over medium – low heat for about 8-10 minutes, until the butternut squash is cooked through.

Transfer everything in the pan to a blender or food processor. Add the rest of the coconut milk and season with salt and pepper. Blend until creamy, and set it aside.

Cook the Greens, Gnocchi, and Sausage Skillet. Meanwhile, wipe or wash out the same skillet.

Add the sausage to the skillet and brown over medium heat, breaking apart and stirring often.

Once the sausage is browned, stir in the gnocchi and saute together for about 3-4 minutes.

Stir in the butternut squash sauce. Once it begins to simmer, add the power greens. Stir the greens in and allow them to wilt. Remove the skillet from the heat.

Season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve in bowls.

    • Here’s the Cook at Home Mom’s response: “I used light canned but any kind is fine as long as its unsweetened/unflavored. 🙂 To be paleo compliant they need to check the ingredients. Coconut milk can be tricky with Carageenan and soy even.”
