I love them in soup. You have to be careful not to over cook them in soup or they just become mushy, which isn't horrible either in reality. This soup is just a lovechild of my need to use up veggies and some chicken and this poor lone package of gnocchi. Here we go!!
Home style Gnocchi Soup
2 cups veggies of your choice I needed to use up carrots, celery and bell peppers. Whatever you choose just make sure it all equals up to 2 cups
1-2 cups chicken cut into small pieces (I used boneless thighs)
1/4 cup corn (optional, I just had some leftover)
5 cups chicken stock
1 1/2 cups skim milk (any milk will work or cream or half and half)
1 1/2 tbsp cornstarch
1 tbsp basil (I used dried)
1/2 tsp rosemary (dried)
1/2 tsp thyme (dried)
1 package gnocchi
In a large pot saute all veggies in 1 tbsp olive oil. After sauteing for 2 minutes add in chicken. Let cook for 3 minutes, stirring often.
Add in basil, rosemary, thyme and chicken stock. Let this simmer for 5 minutes.
This soup is creamy yet brothy. I was so happy with how it turned out! I am known as the "queen of soup" in my family and among my friends. This is one of my favorites. I will be making this one often. Serve this with some warm bread or bread-sticks, maybe a nice panini.........oh heavens!!
Feeling like a bedtime snack......another cup of soup!
