  • 1 box potato gnocchi
  • 12 ounces baby spinach

  • Start by melting half of the butter in a large stockpot, adding the onions, and cook until softened. Add garlic now—not before it will brown too fast and get bitter.

Tips for making this recipe:

  • I like to use water and chicken bouillon in place of chicken stock but you can substitute for 4 cups of chicken broth if you prefer.
  • Make it spicy by using hot Italian sausage in this recipe.
  • To store: add to a covered container and eat within 3 days. Heat in the microwave or on the stovetop in a stockpot.
