Chicken Gnocchi Soup

"Of course, everyone knows of Chicken Dumpling and Chicken Noodle Soups, but have you heard of their first cousin, Chicken Gnocchi?? FIlled with carrots, celery, fresh spinach, big chunks of chicken and pillowy gnocchis, it's a contender and needs to become the family favorite."
