Delicious copycat version of Olive Garden’s Gnocchi Soup.


1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
2 Tablespoons Butter
1 small Onion, diced
2 stalks Celery, diced
3 cloves Garlic, minced
2 Tablespoons All-Purpose Flour
1 1/2 cups Half and Half Cream (10%)
4 cups Chicken Broth
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning, to taste
1 medium carrot, shredded (about 1/2 cup)
2 cups Spinach, packed
1 cup Chicken, cooked and chopped
16oz Gnocchi, uncooked
Salt and Pepper, to taste


Place olive oil and butter in a stockpot over medium heat.

Once hot, add the diced onion, celery and garlic. 

Stir and cook for 3 minutes or until translucent.

Stir in the flour to form a roux and allow to cook until golden or light brown, stirring occasionally for about 2-4 minutes.

Stir in 1 cup of the half and half cream and Italian seasoning to form a thick soup base. 

Add the chicken broth, then the remaining half and half.

Bring the soup to a simmer, then add the carrots and spinach. Stir to combine.

Add chicken and gnocchi.

Continue simmering until the gnocchi is cooked through, about 5 minutes. 

Season to taste with the salt and pepper.
