Directions

  1. Melt butter in a large, heavy saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir onion, celery, carrot, and garlic until softened, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir flour into vegetable mixture; cook and stir until vegetables are evenly coated and flour is fragrant, 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. Pour chicken broth, half-and-half, and milk over vegetable mixture; cook and stir until mixture thickens and comes to a boil, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat and stir gnocchi, chicken, and spinach into broth mixture; season with rosemary, salt, black pepper, and nutmeg. Cook soup over low heat until gnocchi become tender, 8 to 10 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • You can buy frozen gnocchi and place in slow cooker for 2 hours. Or cook entire soup in a slow cooker until flavors blend, 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Really close to Olive Garden. Very good!!!!

Awesome! I opted to use all half and half instead of milk (found it like that in another recipe blog) Delish!!

Easy recipe to follow. I added the whole can of chicken broth so I added some corn starch at the end to thicken it up. I also added the celery leaves. All 3 kids ate it, which is a big deal i...

This turned out really good! I had to cook my chicken and boil my gnocchi (I bought them frozen) before what the actual recipe calls for. Other than that the recipe turned out great.

It was so good my family asked for more. It felt great to have something to warm up the belly.
