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.

Everything is made in one pot and takes less than 30 minutes to make!

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.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 16 ounces hot Italian sausage
  • 6 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes, with juice
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 16 ounce package of gnocchi
  • 1 1/2 cups spinach

  • Add in garlic and sauté for an additional minute.
  • Take the onion and garlic out of the pot and set aside.
  • Add in sausage and brown. (You do not have to add more oil. The sausage tends to give off a lot of grease when it is cooked).
  • Drain excess grease and add the onion and garlic back to the pot.
  • Add in broth, tomatoes and bay leaf. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes.
  • Add in gnocchi and cook until it floats to the top, 2-3 minutes.
