Reviews for Turkey Gnocchi Soup
"I'm giving this 5 stars because my son asked for a second bowl, that rarely happens. I substituted 6 cups broth for the water/chicken base. Instead of the gnocchi, you could also use tortellini."
"Everyone really enjoyed this soup and it was super easy. I would give 4.5 stars if I could but didn't quite make it to the "best thing I ever ate" status to give 5 stars. Definitely will make again."
"Very good. Make again."
"Wonderful idea! Loved it. Tried this with both turkey and rotisserie chicken, both great. I slightly decreased the garlic and added a few extra veggies (celery and fresh spinach). I am adding it to my regular winter recipe menu."
