Thought of the Day #56

More of a "Recipe of the Day". I found a recipe online for chicken &
gnocchi soup, and then adjusted it. It originally had less veggies and
a boatload of cream.

So, here goes...the formatting may be off 'cuz I'm emailing this from my
phone. I'll adjust it when I'm back on the computer.

Chicken & Gnocchi Soup

3 chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
4 cups chicken stock
2 stalks of celery, diced
3 garlic cloves, pressed or chopped
1 carrot, shredded
1/2 onion, diced
1 tblsp olive oil
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp pepper
16 oz pkg gnocchi
1 cup sour cream
1 cup milk
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (not the stuff in the green can!)
1 tblsp cornstarch
salt to taste

*Saute onion, garlic, carrot and celery in oil until onions are
*Add chicken, broth, thyme, milk, sour cream, pepper. Heat to boiling.
Add gnocchi and cheese. Boil for four minutes, reduce heat, simmer for 10 minutes.
*Mix cornstarch with a couple of tablespoons of water. Add to soup. Cook
until thickened.
*Serve. Serves 6+.
It's easy and sooo yummy. Enjoy!
