I hope you enjoy our daughter’s very popular “Olive Garden Chicken & Gnocchi Soup Hack” recipe which is full of creamy, savory flavor just like the real deal. Everyone in your family will love and even crave this version of one of Olive Garden’s most popular soups.
Our oldest child is a very picky eater. She’s 19 years old now, and still gives me these really weird looks when I’m cooking common recipes that most folks love 😡 . Over the years I’ve learned to pick my my battles, and feel confident knowing that one day her pallet was sure to broaden. Until then, she has actually learned how to cook her “safe” and even some very “worldly” favorites when I’m cooking the “weird stuff”.
You see, I ended up giving her full access to the kitchen at an early age and she really just went for the gusto. I watched (excitedly) as she slowly began to experiment with things like chicken teriyaki, and even sushi 😯 . Even though she wasn’t eating my tuna noodle casserole, or goulash 😥 , she was eating some very impressive recipes.
Eventually, she tried a copycat recipe for Olive Garden’s “Chicken & Gnocchi Soup”, but she didn’t follow it exactly and switched things up to make up her own version. Daphne now makes “her version” of Chicken & Gnocchi Soup so often, we even served it at her graduation party, and we freeze it so she can take it to her dorm. This soup is very satisfying to even the pickiest, of pickiest eaters.
There’s our soup chef below on the left.
Photo above—->don’t pay any attention to the photo bomb in the back ground 😯 my husband doesn’t notice things like that, lol. By the way, this photo which is one of my favorites of all time, was taken last Summer in Petoskey, Michigan. Our amazing kiddos (Daphne & Vic) and my husband and I, were searching for
a thrift store someplace to eat while on vacation in Northern, Michigan. We sure could have used some of Daphne’s soup.
Hey friends, before I go…I wanted to make sure you know how to freeze soup in the freezer in a mason jar. It really is so simple (especially when canning scares you) and I do it all the time with all of my soup recipes.
Start off with a very clean Mason jar and let your soup cool to room temperature or at least to a warm temperature. Fill the jar with the soup using a funnel and leave about 1/2 inch to the top of the lid without soup like below. This little space at the top will give the soup some room to expand if necessary. Be sure to eat your soup within 6 months after freezing.
Lastly, if you’re still craving a few more soup recipes my friends Jane & Kristi are sharing their soups today, too. Just scroll down and be prepared to slurp.
