Delicious copycat version of Olive Garden’s Gnocchi Soup.
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.
