  6. Add in the cooked sausage, gnocchi, and spinach or kale, and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the gnocchi begins to float and is cooked through.

  7.  Taste and season with salt and pepper and/or extra crushed red pepper flakes as needed.

  8. Serve immediately, sprinkled with your desired toppings.
