I had never tried Gnocchi before and when I purchased it, I wasn't sure if I'd be a fan.  But, it's delicious!  I made this Taste of Home Soup for dinner last night and it was easy, quick and tasty!  My husband said it should go in the "make it again" pile of recipes I have.  He isn't a pesto fan, so I omitted the dollop on the top, but I'll include it and let you make a decision based on your family's taste.Note:  I found Gnocchi in the pasta section of the grocery store.  I also made this easier by using my frozen pre-grilled chicken, just microwave, cut it up and throw it in.  The flavor is tremendous!  Be sure to scroll down and get details on B105's Taste of Home Cooking School coming in October!!!
