CREAMY TOMATO CHICKEN GNOCCHI SOUP — A creamy tomato based broth is loaded with gnocchi pasta and tender chicken in this easy and heartwarming soup.
I always have the ingredients for a few quick and easy soup recipes on hand, and this Creamy Tomato Chicken Gnocchi Soup is one I’m always prepared to make.
I use the vacuum packed gnocchi in this recipe (and in most recipes calling for gnocchi). It’s easy to keep on hand because much like regular pasta, it lasts forever.
But if you want it to last even longer, you can even keep it in the freezer. I love that gnocchi has the taste of fresh pasta, but with a much longer shelf-life. It’s very much a pantry staple at our house.
This is the kind of soup that lends itself well to all sorts of additions, especially vegetables like carrots, bell peppers, mushrooms or spinach. I usually leave it as is, because I know everyone will eat it sans veggies.
But feel free to make additions and adaptations. If you really want to switch things up, you can swap out the chicken for some cooked, crumbled Italian sausage.
Best of all, this soup comes together in about 20 minutes, so it’s something I can throw together on a busy week night. Or better yet, have my husband or one of my boys whip up a pot.
I like to finish this soup off with a sprinkle of freshly chopped basil and a tablespoon or two of grated Parmesan cheese.
This Creamy Tomato Chicken Gnocchi Soup is so quick, easy and delicious, once you’ve tried it, it’s sure to become a regular meal!
