In our house, weeknight meals need to be quick and easy. If I can’t get dinner into the slow cooker before midday, then it’s a leftovers night or a skillet meal. I don’t have the time or energy to be fussing over multiple things on the stove while running the kids to activities and supervising homework. This one-skillet smoked kielbasa and gnocchi recipe doesn’t disappoint.
