Recipe

I am not sure what it is, but lately chicken sausage is becoming one of my favorite ingredients. I love adding them to stir-frys, bakes, sandwiches, and especially in soups where they add lots of flavor without imparting too much fat. This simple soup combines sausage with potato gnocchi and lots of veggies. I find that the gnocchi can stand up well to slow cooking where some other pastas get too mushy and disintegrate in soup, especially when reheated. I also love how hearty it is. This can also be made stovetop instead of in a slow cooker and freezes great.

    We loved this. We are not onion fans but tried shallots in here instead and it was very good. We also added quite a bit more chicken sausage on the second making of this.
