Chicken & Gnocchi Soup

Chicken & Gnocchi Soup - learn how to make this Olive Garden soup at home...and pronounce gnocchi | www.fantasticalsharing.com

When we last visited our family in Tennessee - which seems like a decade ago - my mom-in-law made us gnocchi soup. I've never had gnocchi. I also had no clue how to say it. I thought it was "knoc-chi", but it turns out it's "neo-key". Let's be honest here...that's just weird and goes against everything I know. LOL.

Anyways, when I returned home, I started craving some neokey soup like my mom-in-law made us and searched for some new recipes. This one is an Olive Garden copycat from a blog called Couponing & Cooking. I've never had the OG version, but I really did love this soup. It was just as good as the one my mom-in-law made us and sated my appetite and craving perfectly :)

What you need:
  • 1 Tbsp. EVOO
  • 4 Tbsp. butter
  • 4 Tbsp. flour
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup celery, chopped
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
