Gnocchi (pronounced nee o kee) are tasty teeny potato dumplings that are a wonderful alternative to traditional pasta. There are a few steps for this casserole, but the effort is worth it. If you have any leftovers they taste just as great reheated the next day.

Ingredients:

  • 3 medium zucchini, sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can diced Italian tomatoes, not drained
  • Salt and pepper to taste, if desired
  • 1 lb. fresh or frozen gnocchi
  • 8 oz. fresh mozzarella cheese, shredded

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil on medium high heat; add the onion and garlic and saute until softened, about 5 minutes.

Add zucchini and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.

Add the tomatoes and stir to combine, season with salt and pepper to taste, cover, reduce the heat and simmer on low.

Meanwhile, prepare the gnocchi according to the package, drain, gently stir the gnocchi into the skillet mixture, let simmer one minute and remove from heat.

Place half of the gnocchi mixture into an 8 x 8 inch baking dish, sprinkle half of the cheese on top, layer the remaining gnocchi on top of the cheese and then sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, uncovered, and serve.

This recipe is for three pounds or gnocchi so you can cut the ingredients into 1/3 or prepare them all, freeze the extra two pounds on a baking sheet, then transfer to a freezer bag for future use.

Roasted gnocchi makes a brilliant and time-saving alternative to roast potatoes or fries and can be found inexpensively in most supermarkets. Heat two tablespoons of sunflower oil till smoking in pan on the hob or in the oven, then shake in the gnocchi. In about five to eight minutes, shake the pan to turn the gnocchi. They should be ready when golden brown, about 15 minutes. These are delicious - better than fries!

I found one on Olive Garden's website by doing a search for it

http://www.oliv  splay.asp?id=102

Ingredients

&frac; cup extra virgin olive oil

1 small Vidalia onion, chopped

1 red bell pepper, sliced (julienned)

&frac; zucchini, sliced, (julienned)

Salt to taste

4 chicken breasts, sliced in &frac; strips

2 small branches rosemary

1 garlic clove, minced

Juice of &frac; lemon

Veronese Sauce

1 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

&frac; cup ricotta cheese

14 fl oz heavy cream

Gnocchi

2 qt water

6 oz all-purpose flour

2 eggs

2 lbs russet potatoes

2 tsp salt

OR

1 lb gnocchi (potato dumplings), cooked according to package directions

Procedures

NOTE: You may make your own gnocchi by following the steps below, or you may purchase them already made.

Gnocchi

WASH potatoes and place in water. Cook potatoes until soft (cook time will depend on size of potatoes). Remove potatoes from water and cool in refrigerator.

PEEL cooled potatoes and push them through a fine grater (rice grater) until mashed; do not over-mash potatoes or they will get tough.

COMBINE potatoes, flour and eggs in a mixing bowl. Mix well until dough does not stick to hands (add small amounts of flour at a time if needed).

DIVIDE dough into 4 sections. Roll out each section into a long rope. Cut each rope into &frac; pieces. Push fork tines on each piece for the classic gnocchi appearance.

BRING water to a boil in a sauce pot. Drop in gnocchi and cook until they float.

Chicken & Sauce

COMBINE garlic, lemon juice, rosemary and chicken slices in a mixing bowl. Let marinate for at least 2 hours.

COMBINE Parmesan cheese, ricotta cheese and heavy cream in a mixing bowl and set aside.

HEAT sauté pan on medium high. Add extra virgin olive oil, onions, bell peppers, and zucchini. Saute until onions are translucent (do not brown).

ADD marinated chicken slices and cook until slices are brown on all sides and internal temperature is 165°F. Reduce heat and add sauce mixture. Bring to a simmer.

DRAIN cooked gnocchi and add to pan with chicken, vegetables and sauce. Stir to coat gnocchi with sauce.

SERVE gnocchi topped with extra Parmesan cheese.

I used this recipe and I absolutely loved the soup. It seems to be the closest to the Olive Garden Chicken Gnocchi Cream Soup. From beginning to end it takes about 10 min. of prep and 30 min. cook time.

1 lb. chicken

1/3 cup flour

1/2 cup fresh chopped spinach

2 1/2 cups whole milk

1 1/2 cup heavy cream

3 chicken bullion cubes

Cracked pepper to taste

17.6 oz. of Gnocchi from Target

On medium heat.

Melt butter in a soup pot, add in the garlic and sautee, add your chicken and cook through out

Add flour and stir in flour and mix well until the flour is cooked into the chicken.

Next add your milk and heavy cream

Then add the veggies(Carrots,Celery,Spinach)

Add three bullion cubes

Add your Gnocchi last it takes 3-4 min. to cook throughout

Mix ingredients well until soup thickens and stirring occasionally. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.

That recipe that someone posted is not for the soup. It is for the chicken Gnocchi Veronese(sp) dish....the soup is Chicken Gnocchi Soup. They have similiar names. The soup is so new, and it is not on their website yet.

Would love the recipe also but I believe that Olive Garden will not post the recipe on their website anytime soon. It is fairly new on the menu.

This recipe taste just like the olive garden except I added a fresh bay leave and 2 stalks of celery and 4 cups of milk and perfection. If you like it thick leave the milk the same. Great job.

I tried this recipe and it is the closest you can come to the soup at Olive Garden. As with the Olive Garden soup, it can taste a little different each time you make it. From beginning to end it takes about 10 min. of prep and 30 min. cook time.

1/3 cup butter

2 cloves of minced garlic

1 lb. chicken cubed or large chunks

1/3 cup flour

1/2 carrot shredded

1 stick of celery shredded

1/4 cup onion shredded

1/2 cup fresh spinach torn in pieces

2 cups whole milk

2 cups heavy cream (I use half and half)

3 chicken bullion cubes

Cracked pepper to taste

17.6 oz. of Gnocchi

On medium heat.

Melt butter in a soup pot, add in the garlic and sautee, add your chicken and cook through out

Add flour and stir in flour and mix well until the flour is cooked into the chicken.

Next add your milk and heavy cream

Then add the veggies(Carrots, Celery, Onion, Spinach)

Add three bullion cubes

Add your Gnocchi last it takes 3-4 min. to cook throughout

This recipe is absolutely delicious. I also found that it was a little thicker than I liked, even though I used half and half and skim milk... I also added more and more vegetables as I went along; next time I make it I will double the amount of spinach and carrots I use, and cut out the celery altogether (everything else keeps its texture so well).

This is definitely one of my new favorite dishes.

The recipe By kimbraman1961 is excellent. I made it last night and it tastes just like the soup I had at Olive Garden. The only difference was that this recipe had lots more ingredients. Maybe the restaurant I ate at was making skimpy soup. But this recipe makes a hearty soup. The only Gnocchi I could find was potato gnocchi and that tasted different from the restaurant version. Next time I go shopping I'll see if I can find a different kind of gnocchi. The carrots and spinach looked beautiful in the creamy base. Oh it was yummy!
