I make this soup a couple times a month. It is light but still tasty. This recipe is what got me to start cooking with spinach! Even my kids enjoy it (my 4 year old won't eat the spinach of course but LOVES the gnocchi and chicken, my 1 year old will eat every bite). And even my husband, who is a soup-hater (why, I'll never understand), adores it.

  3. Meanwhile, put l/4 cup of the chicken broth, garlic, butter and sugar in a large saucepan over medium-low heat.

  5. Add the spinach and let it wilt for about 30 seconds.
