Colder weather = soup weather which I am so excited about!

I have been making alot of soups lately and freezing some of the leftovers. It makes a great quick and easy lunch or dinner.

This Italian Gnocchi Soup is loaded with sausage, gnocchi, spinach, kale, crushed tomatoes and chicken broth. Hearty and comforting with a spicy kick.

This soup has a little spice to it from the spicy Italian sausage and crushed red pepper. If you are not a fan of the spice feel free to substitute mild Italian sausage and omit the crushed red pepper.
