This has become an easy winter staple in our household. Originally a Olive Garden copycat, I tweaked the recipe to make it my own. I find that it pleases everyone, which is becoming increasingly more difficult as my kids get older. This soup is so simple to put together, fast, and it’s great topped with parmesan cheese. If you prefer, make the recipe gluten free by substituting GF flour and Rice Gnocchi, it is great either way! Enjoy!
