Though we haven’t really had much cold weather yet, I’ve already started with the warm and inviting soups. We love them!
I found a copycat recipe for an Olive Garden Soup on Pinterest for Chicken Gnocchi. Y.U.M.
Gnocchi (is that singular or plural?) is are little potato pastas that are so wonderfully good! You can make your own, or find them where the pasta is sold. This is a really filling soup!
Chicken Gnocchi – From Cooking.com
3-4 chicken breasts, cooked and diced
4 cups chicken stock
2 cups half-and-half
1 stalk celery, diced
1 garlic clove, chopped
1/2 carrot, shredded
1/2 onion, diced
1 cup fresh spinach, chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon thyme
salt and pepper
16 ounces potato gnocchi
1 tablespoon cornstarch (optional)
Saute the onion, celery, garlic, carrot in oil over medium heat until onion is translucent.
Add chicken, chicken stock, half and half, salt and pepper, thyme. Heat to boiling, then add gnocchi. Gently boil for 4 minutes, then turn down to a simmer for 10 minutes.
Add spinach and cook for another 1-2 minutes until spinach is wilted.
(Heat to boiling and add cornstarch dissolved in 1-2 Tbsp water at this point if you want a thicker soup.).
Ladle into bowls and serve
This is so satisfying on a cold day!
What’s your favorite fall soup?
