Fill a 2-quart saucepan
with 6 cups water and 1 ounce salt and heat to a boil over high heat.
In a medium saute pan over medium heat, heat the canola oil. Add the sausage and mushrooms and saute, without stirring or disturbing them much for optimum color, until the sausage and mushrooms
are light brown, about 1 1/2 minutes.
At this time, your water should be at a full boil. Drop the gnudi or gnocchi
in the boiling water.
Back at the saute pan, add the zucchini, squash and tomato
and saute for about 45 seconds, then add the garlic and shallots
and saute for another 45 seconds. Deglaze
the pan with the white wine
and add the thyme. The wine will evaporate during this process, leaving some moisture from your vegetables. Once evaporated, add the heavy cream and bring to a boil without stirring.
Check on the gnudi in the boiling water; it is ready when it floats to the top. Drain
the gnudi and introduce to the saute pan, turning off the heat.
Toss all the ingredients until everything is well coated. Transfer to a serving vessel. Finish by adding dashes of the parsley
around the top and drizzling the truffle oil on top. Garnish
with shaved Parmesan
