Olive Garden Chicken and Gnocchi Soup

My mom and I enjoyed the soup and salad lunch at Olive Garden a few months ago and fell in love with their Chicken and Gnocchi soup.  Mmmm, so good. As soon as I got home I searched for a highly rated copycat recipe for it and found this.  Yummy.

Olive Garden Chicken and Gnocchi Soup

  • Saute the onion, celery, garlic, carrot in oil over medium heat until onion is translucent.

  • Add chicken, chicken stock, half and half, salt and pepper, thyme. Heat to boiling, then add gnocchi. Gently boil for 4 minutes, then turn down to a simmer for 10 minutes.

    Add spinach and cook for another 1-2 minutes until spinach is wilted.

    (Heat to boiling and add cornstarch dissolved in 1-2 Tbsp water at this point if you want a thicker soup.).

    Ladle into bowls and serve!

    I just took the girls to lunch at Olive Garden and loved this soup too. I am glad you posted the recipe, I will have to try it! I also liked that soup with the spicy sausage and kale. Did you try that one?
