  • Whisk half-and-half into the flour mixture. Add salt, thyme, parsley, and nutmeg. Simmer, stirring until the mixture is well blended and smooth, 10 to 15 minutes. Whisk in chicken broth; stir in chicken breast and carrots. Bring soup to a boil.

  • Cook gnocchi in the boiling soup until they float to the top, 2 to 4 minutes. Stir in spinach; cook until liquid is slightly reduced, about 6 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

You can add as much or as little spinach, carrots, and chicken as you want.

Shredded chicken breast will work as well.

My son and I love this soup at Olive Garden so I tried this recipe. It was delicious! It was much better after simmering on low 45 minutes though.
