When I make soups, sauce and casseroles, I always try to at least double, and preferably quadruple the recipe If I can, so that I can freeze portions for those busy, or lazy days, when cooking is just not going to happen. A few weeks ago I was replenishing my freezer meals, making tomato sauce, lasagna’s, and hubby’s fave, my copycat version of Olive Garden’s Zuppa Toscana, when my super pregnant bestie requested that I make a batch of her fave soup from Olive Garden. My friend is obsessed with OG’s Chicken Gnocchi soup and wanted some to freeze and eat once baby arrives, so I of course whipped her up a huge pot!
For those new here, I used to work at OG while in university as a waitress, and although I was never shown how to make their recipes, over the years through trial and error I have been able to re-create and make my own copy cat version of several dishes. I tried making Chicken Gnocchi soup last year, with homemade gnocchi, and it was a bust. This time after some tweaking of last years recipe, and replacing homemade gnocchi with store bought (to make life easier, and speed up cooking time) I am happy to report that I’ve officially mastered the recipe and am happy to share with all of you my copy cat version of Olive Garden’s Chicken Gnocchi soup! I hope you enjoy!
As always, please let me know if you try out my recipe, and if you have any great restaurant copy cat recipes please share the with me!
Have a fabulous weekend lovelies!
