If you are wondering what in the world gnocchi is, let me shed a little bit of light on the subject. Gnocchi are Italian dumplings made from potatoes and flour. Creamy Chicken Gnocchi Soup has a thick and rich broth with shredded carrots, celery, chopped spinach, gnocchi and chicken hidden throughout. This is very close to the Olive Garden soup. Theres another recipe on the web, which was the basis of this recipe, however, I have changed it to use less cream.
