sausage gnocchi soup


The girls at work love to share recipes and food inspiration, and the origin of this recipe is found in those moments of sharing. Kellie’s friend found it on and passed it along to Kellie when she needed something easy to make and she passed it along to us. And here I am passing it along to all of you lovely people. This is the heart of food – friends and sharing. Enjoy!


  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • 2 small or one large carrot, diced
  • 2 hot sausages (or medium Italian sausages plus some red pepper flakes)
  • 1 can stewed or diced tomatoes with Italian seasonings
  • 1 can beef broth plus one can water
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1/2 package gnocchi (~1/2 lb)
  • 3-4 cups fresh spinach
  • parmesan for garnish


  • Cut open sausage casings, break apart, and cook in pan until done.
  • Sauté onion and carrots.
  • Place all ingredients except gnocchi, spinach and parmesan in a soup pot, and bring to a boil.
  • Add gnocchi to boiling soup. When the gnocchi come to the surface, they are 2 minutes from being done. At this point, add the spinach. Gnocchi, spinach, and soup should be ready at the same time.
  • Serve hot and top with fresh parmesan as desired.
