This is one of my family favorites! It can be made as a soup or thickened up as a chowder. GREAT on a cool fall evening or on a cold winter night ! I developed this one cool evening when I wanted something different, yet filling. Tired of tomato based soups, I hunted thru the pantry and found the gnocchi, spices and soups. I had 2 lonely chicken breasts to feed a family of 4 and a half used bag of chopped spinach that was in the way in the freezer! TA DA. something beautiful !
