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.

I had a box of gnocchi in my pantry and searched recipes I could use for it. Once I saw this had chicken sausage I knew it was a keeper. Loved that this was packed with veggies. The kids even liked it, especially my 14 year old. Very flavorful and super easy. The only thing I will do differently is add an extra link and use whole box of gnocchi since the kids devoured those ingredients.

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.
