Suite Meal 7: Gnocchi with Spicy Salami

What a day?! Right!

I found out that we are going to drive 15 hrs. to see my family in OH, which made my week. I miss my family so much and love them even more. My mom and sisters are my best friends. I can't wait to celebrate with them.

Today I was stranded in the small hotel with my babies by myself ALL DAY. WOW. They bounced from one side of the wall to the other. My Bailey received three or four booboo's. She is potty training for the second time! She was almost fully trained until I moved to this room. Now, I am starting over. Well, she peed twice on the floor. Yep. At least, it was in the bathroom. After my day, I drank half a bottle of wine. LOL. (Oh. Don't get me wrong. I love my kids more then life itself).

There was one positive aspect in my day I went to World Market and spent 50 dollars worth of stuff, but payed 29!! I bought some authentic spicy salami sausage, Chorizo, Gnocchi (can't make my own like the other lovely blogs I have visited. My kitchen is WAY to small.) , some awesome canned tomatoes and much more.

BUT I made the Salami Sausage and the Gnocchi for this amazing dish. After a day like today. I made this meal all in one pot. Easy. No mess. Quick. SO SO YUMMY
1 LG Volpi Stick Hard Salami (Good Quality) Mine was super SPICY

2 Cans Whole Tomato (Good Quality)
5 cloves of Garlic
1 LG Onion.
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. basil
3 tsp. oregano
2 tsp. sugar
1/4 cp. parm cheese
1 cp. mozz. cheese
2 1lb packages of gnocchi

1. Cut the salami in small bit size pieces. Brown with a little olive oil. Add the onions and garlic. Cook until brown. When the veggies are tender and the salami is brown add the tomatoes. Toss and add the herbs and parm cheese. Toss. Let simmer. Turn up the heat.

2. Add the gnocchi to the boiling pan. Top with the mozz. cheese. Close the lid. Turn it off

3. Serve. So so yummy.
