Left over turkey? Here is a fantastic recipe...turkey & gnocchi soup! Gnocchi is a potato can find it next to the dried pasta at your local grocery store :)


1 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoons butter

2 stalks celery, chopped

4 cloves garlic, minced

2 carrots, peeled and sliced

2 cups chopped cooked turkey or chicken breasts

1 (32-ounce) box chicken broth

2 chicken bouillon cubes

2 tablespoons Italian seasoning

1 (16-ounce) package potato gnocchi

1 (6-ounce bag) baby spinach leaves

2 cups half-and-half cream

Salt and pepper to taste

1 tablespoon cornstarch

½ cup water

Sauté veggies in oil and butter for about 6-8 minutes.  Stir in broth and chicken and bring to a soft boil.  Stir in the rest of the ingredients and simmer covered on low for 30 minutes.   Stir cornstarch and ½ cup water together and slowly pour into soup while stirring.  Cover and simmer on low another 10 minutes or so.  Great with grilled cheese!


  1. This was incredible! I didn't have spinach, so being the southern girl that I am, I added okra! Even my husband, who hates soup, raved about this recipe! I can't wait to have it again.

  2. Yay! And what a great idea to add okra! I'm going to try that :)
