  1. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook ground sausage until browned, breaking it up into small pieces, about 7 minutes. Transfer sausage to a bowl. Drain fat from skillet; wipe out skillet with a paper towel.
  2. Melt butter in skillet over medium heat, Stir in onion and saute until translucent, 2 or 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook for another minute. Whisk in flour until evenly mixed into butter, 1 minute. Slowly pour in cream and Swanson(R) Unsalted Chicken Broth. Whisk mixture until it comes to a boil, then immediately reduce heat to low. Simmer until mixture thickens, whisking occasionally, about 10 minutes.
  3. Return sausage to the skillet; add spinach, tomatoes, and gnocchi. Cook over medium heat until gnocchi is heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Add dash of salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with Parmesan cheese.


  • Cook's Note:
  • This is a fast comfort soup, since the sausage is already spicy the Swanson® Unsalted Chicken Broth goes very well, allowing for all the flavors to come through. Any other vegetables can be added to one's own tastes!

Simple recipe for a delicious fast weeknight supper. I added about 1/4 cup of chopped Parmesan cheese rind (that I had been saving for just such an occasion) with the chicken broth and cream. It...

My husband and I loved this recipe. I made my own Gnocchi using another recipe on here called quick gnocchi. It had amazing flavor!

I never like to rate a recipe unless it was prepared pretty much exactly as stated, but this was SO good that I must share. My only deviations were to use hot italian turkey sausage, half and h...

I just made mine the exact same way as this recipe but I added Romano and Parmesan cheese and substituted the spinach for kale. I also couldn't help but add some bacon to it as well! Turned out ...
