How to Make Italian Gnocchi Soup:

- Stir in baby spinach and add pepper.
- Serve with grated cheese if desired.
What is Gnocchi?
Gnocchi is an Italian dumpling made from potatoes and flour. It is a hearty addition to soup or can be served with your favorite sauce or simply brown butter and herbs.
Where to Buy Gnocchi?
You can find fresh, frozen or dried gnocchi in most grocery stores. I generally buy the dried and it's located near the pasta. Obviously fresh and frozen will be in their relative departments.
I hope you will add these ingredients to your shopping list and make this soon. I know you are going to love it! You don't have to be an expert in the kitchen, this dish is simple and so incredibly delicious!

I love all of the beautiful leafy greens in this soup!!
Thanks Liz! It was a great way to get my kids to eat greens!
Gnocchi is my favorite! This soup looks incredible, love it.
Thanks Aggie, I love gnocchi too.
Why can’t refrigerated be used?
This recipe came from a cookbook. I have never tried refrigerated or frozen gnocchi but I'm guessing the cooking time is just different. I would say you could use either and just cook until the gnocchi is cooked through.

I've wanted to give more Italian soups a try... this one seems to be a good one to start with!!
This was loaded with flavor. I used hot Italian sausage and had to use gluten free gnocchi. Outstanding and so easy. Served this with a hunk of sour dough bread for my husband. He really enjoyed it. Great on a cold night in the fall. I will make this again.
Thanks Deb! I am so glad y'all enjoyed it. It's one of my go- to dinners for busy weeknights.
Can this soup be frozen ?
I haven't tried freezing it but I don't see any reason why you couldn't.
I have doubled the batch and frozen 1/2. The spinach is different like if you would have used frozen instead of fresh. Nobody noticed 😉 II will be doubling this from now on as as it is a family favorite.
I have made this recipe twice now. First time was according to directions. We had an unexpected snow and I had the main ingredients of sweet Italian sausage, gnocchi, and chicken broth. Didn’t have fresh spinach or canned diced tomatoes. I substituted tomato sauce for the canned tomatoes and frozen Green Giant creamed spinach for the fresh spinach. It had a really creamy tomato soup vibe to it and so good. Great with frozen garlic knots I heated in the toaster oven.
It's one of my favorites for a quick supper. I bet the tomato sauce and creamed spinach made an amazing soup, especially with the garlic knots. Thanks for stopping by.
Made this yesterday and it was by far one of the most delicious meals that I have made that is this also super easy to make. I was very skeptical that it would turn out very good since there are barely any ingredients and there's no onion or garlic, but I genuinely think it doesn't need it. Next time I will double up on the spinach just to get more veggies in there.
I am so glad you enjoyed it. I love it for something quick and easy.
Hi, Just made this soup and is really good. I thought it need some garlic and basil so I had that and it is very good.
So glad you enjoyed it! Love the garlic and basil additions.
Every time I make this soup someone asks for the recipe. And bonus that it comes together sooooo fast with only a few ingredients. So glad I found this!
I am so glad you are enjoying it. It's one of my favorite easy meals. Thanks for stopping by to let me know.
