Chicken and Sausage Gnocchi Soup

 Chicken and Sausage Gnocchi Soup

The guys in my house like this and one of my son's friends ate 7 snack bowls of it. I use homemade broth. You can adjust depending on what you like.  I usually make this a day ahead, let cool, then reheat in a crockpot the next day.  It thickens up a lot. 


3-4 ribs celery diced

3-5 cups diced carrots

2-3 onions chopped

3 tablespoons olive oil 

3-4 cloves garlic, minced

1-2 tsp dried basil

1-2 tsp dried oregano 

12 cups chicken broth

4 to 6 cups chicken, chopped

2 precooked Old Neighborhood Hot Italian Sausage, diced and sautéed until browned 

1 can evaporated milk

(If you like it more milky, add another can of evaporated milk and reduce chicken broth)

Two 17 oz packs of potato gnocchi 

2-3 precooked red potatoes, chopped with skin

4-6 cups of rinsed chopped spinach

Saute veggies in olive oil until onions are translucent. 

Add chicken broth, chicken and dried herbs.

Cook on simmer for around 20 minutes.


Bring to boil, add gnocchi.

Take a little of the hot broth and stir into the condensed milk.This keeps the milk from curdling.  

Once gnocchi is floating on top, slowly add milk, stirring as you pour milk in.

Add chopped cooked potatoes with skin on. Simmer for a little while before cooling. 

5 minutes before serving, add chopped spinach, heat until it is wilted.
