Chicken and Gnocchi Soup

This soup, inspired by Olive Garden’s Chicken and Gnocchi soup, was a big hit at our house – I will definitely make it again. I served it with sliced whole grain bread and it was very filling. Ours ended up being a bit spicy and I can only deduce that when we chopped the onions and peppers for the freezer (I used sautéed onions and peppers from the freezer instead of chopping them when I made the soup), that we were also chopping jalapeno peppers with the same knife. Although unexpected, the extra kick was actually a nice addition to the soup.
