Chicken Gnocchi Soup
My favorite Capellini Pomodoro was no longer on the menu. What to have? One of my friends was having this soup and a salad so I thought I would give it a try. Good Choice!!! it was so tasty that I got the recipe off the Internet.
I have not tried making this soup yet but plan to do so soon , as I hope you all will give it a try and let me know what you think of it. Was I right or wrong???
