Prep the oven and baking sheet. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
Toss all the ingredients together. Break the sausage into bite size pieces and place onto the prepared baking sheet along with gnocchi, mushrooms, shallots, olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss everything together well and arrange the gnocchi mixture in an even layer on the baking sheet.
Bake. Transfer the baking sheet to the oven and roast for about 25 to 30 minutes or until the gnocchi are plump and sausage is cooked through.
Garnish and serve. Immediately garnish with parsley and sprinkle with parmesan cheese and serve.
Feel free to experiment with different veggies and different sausages. Keep in mind that different vegetables may require different baking time.
You don't necessarily have to remove the casings from the fresh sausage, totally up to you. If you don't remove them, just carefully cut the fresh sausage into 1-inch pieces.
Don't skip the olive oil. You want to make sure you drizzle olive oil over the gnocchi, this will ensure they won't dry out during baking.
Your gnocchi is done, once it starts to turn a golden color. Each oven is different, so start checking after 20 minutes and go from there.
If you like your gnocchi and crispier, you can always turn the broiler on for 1-2 minutes, but keep an eye on them as they can burn quickly.
