Gnocchi with Sausage and Mozzerella

1 lb Italian sausage (about 3 links)
10 oz. bag of frozen potato gnocchi
24 oz. spaghetti sauce
3 oz. mozzarella, diced

Remove the casing from the Italian sausage then cut the sausage into bite-size pieces. In a large non-stick frying pan, saute the Italian sausage until cooked through. Add the spaghetti sauce and bring to a simmer. 

Fill a 2-quart saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Drop the gnocchi into the boiling water and cook 5 to 7 minutes. Drain the gnocchi and add to the pan of sausage and sauce. Toss together and let simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in the mozzarella and let simmer gently, stirring occasionally, until the cheese has melted.

Garnish with fresh basil and serve with garlic bread.
