Reviews for Chicken Gnocchi Pesto Soup
"Love this recipe. The five stars are for the original recipe. But over the years I've tweaked it to our individual tastes. I use chicken broth in place of water. I saute mushrooms, onion & garlic and add to the soup. If I don't have rotisserie chicken on hand, then I saute some chicken breasts with the vegetables. Definitely try the recipe & then make it your own."
"This was delicious! Added mushrooms because they needed to be used and added a little more water. Very fast to make."
"Thank you, Deanna, my neighbor to the South!! (Minnesota here!!)I finally made this wonderful soup! (Twice!)I did 'sweat' chopped garlic in a bit of butter before adding the other ingredients.(I would suggest whisking the water into the sauce to blend it.)Not wanting to venture out in freezing temps., I did use frozen spinach. Not the kind that is frozen in a block.I made half the recipe because I was dining alone and wanted reruns the next day. Needless to say, there wasn't too much left!I also topped it with some grated parmesan.It was totally a feast for the eyes when topped with a teaspoon of Pesto with the olive oil slowly running off onto the warm soup!!I made it again a few days later!!What more can I say, other than easy, flavorful, and easily 10 stars - or 20!!Loved it - Kitzer"
