Chicken Gnocchi Soup

Olive Garden Copycat Chicken Gnocchi Soup
Absolutely delicious!

Saute onion, celery, garlic in butter and olive oil over medium heat
until onion becomes translucent.

Add Flour to make a roux.

Let the butter and flour mixure cook for about
a minute before adding half and half.

Add carrots and chicken in to the roux.

I used a rotisserie chicken.

Add chicken broth and while it is thickening,
cut up your fresh spinach.

Cook Gnocchi according to package and
add to soup along with seasonings.

Once the mixture thickens again, add the spinach and salt and pepper.
 

Once it is heated through  it is ready to serve!
This is a delicious thick, hardy soup.
I served with bruschetta! (recipe coming soon)
If you like Italian, you will love this.
