One of my favorite things to eat at our local Olive Garen restaurant is their Chicken Gnocchi soup. I can’t tell you how upsetting it is when I find out I’m just a little bit too late and they are out of my favorite soup for the day. Since I seem to be just a little bit too late to enjoy my favorite soup, I figured I had to come home and make my own version, in my Magic Pot of course!
I have tested this soup out with my family and a few other family members and I think I nailed it! It is even better the next day when you eat it at work or in your own kitchen. I love to add more spinach before I warm it up to give it that huge punch of spinach that I love. It’s super creamy and perfect for those cold winter days, or if your just craving some delicious creamy soup.
