The first time I ordered gnocchi, I had no idea that it was dumplings. I was under the impression that it was some rice like dish, but after ordering, my husband informed me that is risotto. What is it with all these fancy and weird names? Anyway, we were at an elegant restaurant and I did not want to cause a scene and reorder my food, so I just figured I would give it a go. Finding out it was potato based reassured me a little more because I knew I would enjoy it at least a little. When the food arrived, I was pleasantly surprised with the presentation. Then came the moment of truth.
I popped one into my mouth and as I chewed it up, I think I went to heaven and came back. This is the heavenliest dumpling dish I have ever tried. Full of cheesy goodness, these are like little raviolis, but shaped prettier than that. Well, as soon as we got back home, I looked up how to make this at home and realized that these came frozen, so I got to work and created this. It is a soup with chicken some gnocchi inside… a variation of what I was served that evening at the beautiful restaurant.
