Turkey Gnocchi Soup Recipe

Turkey Gnocchi Soup Recipe

While trying to find a creative use for leftover turkey, we decided to add gnocchi instead of noodles. My 8-year-old daughter always asks for more. If you don't have leftover turkey, a rotisserie chicken works just as well. —Amy Babines, Virginia Beach, Virginia
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 25 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 medium carrots, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 6 cups water
  • 3 teaspoons reduced-sodium chicken base
  • 3/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 package (16 ounces) potato gnocchi
  • 2 cups cubed cooked turkey breast
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese


  • 1. In a Dutch oven, heat butter over medium heat. Add carrots; cook and stir 8-10 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer.
  • 2. Stir in water, chicken base and Italian seasoning; bring to a boil. Add gnocchi. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 3-4 minutes or until gnocchi float. Stir in turkey, peas and pepper; heat through. Top servings with cheese.
    Freeze option: Freeze cooled soup in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a saucepan, stirring occasionally and adding a little water if necessary. Yield: 6 servings (2 quarts).

"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."

"I decided to use chicken broth instead of water and chicken base. I also used frozen mix of peas, corn, carrots, and green beans. Probably won't make it again. It was just average."

"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."
