  1. Melt butter in a large, heavy saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir onion, celery, carrot, and garlic until softened, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir flour into vegetable mixture; cook and stir until vegetables are evenly coated and flour is fragrant, 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. Pour chicken broth, half-and-half, and milk over vegetable mixture; cook and stir until mixture thickens and comes to a boil, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat and stir gnocchi, chicken, and spinach into broth mixture; season with rosemary, salt, black pepper, and nutmeg. Cook soup over low heat until gnocchi become tender, 8 to 10 minutes.

This was absolutely wonderful. Tastes just like the one from Olive Garden. I'll definitely be making this again.

Seeing that Gnocchi soup is my ultimate choice even though I desperately try to convince myself to try other soups from Olive Garden, I have to say this recipie is by farr better than the Olive Garden. The only thing I can think of is just making sure the gnocchi is boiled till tender before it's added to the soup, seeing that this recepie is a quick one. In love!

This turned out really good! I had to cook my chicken and boil my gnocchi (I bought them frozen) before what the actual recipe calls for. Other than that the recipe turned out great.
