  • 1 package (16 to 17.6 ounces) gnocchi, cooked (RESERVE 1 CUP COOKING WATER)
  • 12 ounces beef smoked sausage, sliced into 1/2-inch slices, on the diagonal
  • 2 cans (15 ounces) sweet corn, drained
  • 2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 jalapeƱo, seeded and diced


  1. Preheat oven to broil. Place the corn in an even layer on a prepared rimmed baking sheet, and drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, and broil for 8 minutes, or until the corn is charred.

  2. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add the sliced sausage to the pan in an even layer. Sear both sides (about 3 minutes a side).

  3. Add the roasted corn and the cooked gnocchi, and the reserved cooking water to the pan. Mix well and remove from heat.

  4. Add the butter, 1/4 cup parmesan, the juice from one lemon, and the diced jalapeno. (can reserve a bit of parmesan and jalapeno for individual servings.) Stir to combine.
