Gnocchi are little pillowy potato dumplings that are delicious when doused with sauce. We're jazzing up this recipe by taking gnocchi a step further – pan-frying them until they're crispy and golden-brown. The crispy gnocchi and sausage bring a whole new meaning to the word: 'delicious.' Topped with home-baked Parmesan crisps, you won't believe this meal was homemade!

Meanwhile, on a parchment-lined baking sheet, evenly sprinkle 1/2 cup Parmesan into four flat piles. Bake in the middle of oven, until cheese is crispy and golden-brown, 4-5 min. Remove the sheet from oven, and set aside to cool slightly before removing crisps. (TIP: While crisps are still warm — carefully, use a flat spatula to lift gently from the parchment. This helps prevent them from sticking!)
