This Chicken Gnocchi Soup is a quick & easy version of the classic gnocchi soup! Made easy with jarred Alfredo sauce, cooked chicken  , pesto, and chopped fresh spinach. Creamy chicken gnocchi soup can be on the dinner table in just 30 minutes and it’s made in one pot on the stove. 


  • 1 can (14.5 oz) chicken broth
  • 1 jar (15 oz) roasted garlic alfredo sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 cups chopped cooked chicken
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 package (16 oz) gnocchi
  • 2 cups chopped fresh spinach
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon pesto (add more to taste)


  • In a soup pot, over medium-high heat, add the chicken broth, alfredo sauce, water, chicken, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Stir together.Bring this mixture to a low boil, while stirring occasionally. This will take about 5 minutes.
  • Once boiling, add the gnocchi and chopped spinach. Cook for 8-10 minutes or until the gnocchi are cooked (they will look puffy and float to the top) and the spinach is soft and wilted.* Don’t let this boil too much. If it is, simply turn down the heat to medium.
  • Stir in the heavy cream and pesto. Let heat through for a few minutes before serving.


Serving Size : This soup makes about 6 cups of soup. It can easily serve 6 people, with each serving being 1 cup. https://71c7df12ab62f4872fb963fd7ceaa41a.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-38/html/container.htmlGnocchi : You will find these near the other dried pastas and pasta sauce at the grocery store. Pesto : Don’t skip this! I know it’s a small amount but it makes a big difference. Use more if wanted. Not too much because pesto has lots of oil in it, which can affect the texture of the creamy broth base. Spinach : I prefer to cut the stems off of the spinach before chopping. You don’t have to do this, but I like to, so that way the soup does not have big, long pieces of stem in it. Alfredo Sauce : The brand Classico makes a roasted garlic alfredo sauce, and that’s what I use in this recipe.
