We all know what our dream midweek recipes include, right? Ready in under 20 minutes, and cooked all in one pan. Add in chorizo and OH HELLO.
Here it is, my Chorizo Gnocchi recipe. Ticking all of those boxes and more.
You can throw everything in the pan and cook together, leaving you with a rich, sumptuous sauce that’s full of goodness in just 20 minutes flat. I just love evenings when I know I have a really tasty meal to look forward to but it’s not going to take loads of time or effort.
Both gnocchi and chorizo have very forgiving shelf lives too, which means you can buy the ingredients to keep in the fridge until you get one of those days in the week when you haven’t planned, defrosted a freezer meal or put anything in the slow cooker either. Voila.
You’ll love this recipe because:
✅ Simple but tasty ingredients

FAQs about this Chorizo Gnocchi Pan-Fry Recipe
Can I use a different meat variation with this recipe?
Yes, you could leave out the chorizo and add something like leftover chicken instead. Just use some more smoked paprika to retain the spices though.
Can I add more vegetables?
Sure. Add as many as you like and get in another one of your five-a-day. Something like a tin of sweetcorn or frozen peas might work well.
How can I make this even quicker to make on the day?
If you’re really wanting to streamline dinner time, you could cook this the night before instead. Once cooled, pop it all into a casserole dish and place in the fridge overnight. When you’re ready to eat, put the dish in the oven to reheat at 200C for 20 minutes, adding the grated cheese on top to melt and brown.
What kind of cheese should I use?
Grated mozzarella works well because of how it melts, but you can use whichever cheese you prefer.
