A family favorite! I add Rattlesnake cheese made here in MN. A tequila and habanaro cheese. So yummy!

Perfect for a cold Sunday evening! I used 1 cup of organic half & half + 1 cup of water instead of the 2 cups of fat free half and half. I also ended up doing about 1.5 cups of chicken broth and a little extra spinach to healthy it up a bit! A little pink Himalayan salt and coarse black pepper to add a bit more flavor, and it was perfection!!

It was very bland and could use more liquid a lot of time for just ok soup

this was amazing! Rich and hearty, mildly flavorful and super easy. It's perfect on a weeknight, with plenty for lunch the next day. It is my idea of fresh, and wholesome food! I made this again and it is by far one of my favorites ! Absolutely delicious!!

Pretty good... added celery with the carrot. Would add more gnocchi next time!

Easy and very tasty. Missing something though, seasoning or another veggie, not sure, but good.

Made this and only changes I made were I used whole milk and real half and half. I also added some poultry seasoning since this seemed like a modified creamy chicken noodle soup recipe. It was great! I ate it for lunch days after and it kept and reheated very well!

So good!! This is a very hearty soup perfect for winter. My husband loved it, and if it was a bit healthier we'd make it all the time. Note: I added more flour to thicken up the soup to our liking.

This was my first time making and eating gnocchi - and I wasn't disappointed. It took no time at all to make, and tasted wonderful. My family and I ate the soup and only had two containers left over, and they were gone the next day. Next time I'll make a double batch.

This recipe was delicious and my entire family (of 6) loved it! I made homemade gnocchi and dropped them in after adding the chicken but before the spinach. I will definitely make this soup again. I am almost certain the kids will be begging for it again very soon.

this was one of the best recipes ever, so glad I tried it. I had tried this soup at the local Olive Garden a few times and tried to make it on my own when I found this site. Try it you'll love it. I do not like the gnocchi nor dumplings so I was so happy I could leave them out and still get the soup.

Never had gnocchi so this was a new adventure. Found out I am not a big fan of this pasta but otherwise, the soup was very good. Creamy rich and good mix of veggies and chicken.. I did add extra carrot, onion and spinach and like it with the extra veggies. I will probably tweak it and add either potato or dumplings as replacement for the gnocchi next time I use the recipe.

Made this today and it is amazing, so quick and easy. Can see opportunity to add other ingredients to vary taste. Highly recommend!

This recipe is simple and delicious! I added Trader Joe's super sweet frozen corn to it and it was just perfect!
