Olive Garden Chicken Gnocchi Soup copycat is every bit as creamy and delicious as the restaurant version, made in less than 30 minutes!

There’s an explanation almost everybody loves Olive Garden. Their food is acceptable! Also, habit-forming! A speedy hunt of Pinterest uncovers many Olive Garden copycat plans — from their Italian serving of mixed greens dressing to their toasted ravioli. I can imagine a couple of motivations behind why apparently everybody needs to reproduce these dishes at home. Above all else, it’s more spending plan well disposed to eat at home. Second, you can make however much you need (extras!). Third, you don’t need to get into pants that don’t have a flexible belt and drive to the eatery when a hankering hits. Furthermore, fourth, you don’t need to take your children out to eat. I most likely ought to have put that as my first explanation, really. Let’s be honest, taking your children out to eat is a definitive bet. What’s more, now and again you’re only not in the temperament to test your karma.

How about we simply say the powerful coincidence of these reasons met up for me one pivotal Saturday. Not to be outshone, I chose to make my own Chicken Gnocchi Soup, dang it. Also, nobody and no jeans with a zipper and a button planned to stop me. Fortunately, I had some gnocchi in the cooler and the remainder of the fixings close by (it resembles I unconsciously ready for this accurate second).

The rest, they say, is Olive Garden formula history. The soup was tasty, nobody needed to go anyplace, and — in particular — there were a lot of extras.

HOW DO YOU MAKE GNOCCHI?

Gnocchi is made from potatoes, flour, and eggs. I’m not sure what genius came up with this combination, but I am forever grateful. Making gnocchi is fun and rewarding, if you have the time and inclination. I’ve made it before but it’s been a while and now I just tend to use the store-bought varieties, as I find they work well in most recipes. If you want to try your hand at your own homemade gnocchi, allow me to refer you to this recipe. I hope you enjoy it and that it turns out perfectly.
