Chicken Sausage & Gnocchi Soup 🔥 Soups are my comfort food, I can eat them all year long. My family always mocks me because it can be 90F outside, and I will make soup. I always get asked where my bowls are from, they are from anthropologie! If you are a soup lover like me, you have to check out my Caramelized onion & Tomato Soup!

Why You’ll Love Chicken Sausage & Gnocchi Soup

This one is sooo cozy, spicy and delicious. It’s perfect for the fall and winter seasons, but if you are like me it’s perfect all year round. This is perfect as a main meal honestly, it gets me full every time. The parmigiano rind when boiling adds the best taste… trust me! It’s super easy to make.


If you don’t like it super spicy, you can adjust the amount of calabrian chile paste to your liking. You can substitute the parsley for your favorite herbs.

Recipe Tip

*Chop everything pretty small so you get little bits of everything on every bite.

*Adding the Parmigiano rind adds the best taste!
