Italian Wedding Soup with Gnocchi
photo by Everything Tasty Ki
- Ready In:
- 1hr 30mins
- 1 lb ground chicken
- 1 large egg
- 1⁄2 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
- 1⁄2 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 dash nutmeg
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground pepper
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 celery ribs, chopped
- 2 medium onions, chopped
- 1 package shredded carrot
- 6 cups chicken broth (I prefer Swanson low sodium)
- 1 (16 ounce) package of frozen gnocchi
- 1 cup frozen peas
- 1⁄3 cup flat leaf parsley, finely chopped (2 handfuls)
- To make the meatballs it’s really easy. Just mix all the meatball ingredients together in a big bowl and then shape them into walnut sized meatballs (about 40-45) and set aside while you prepare the soup.
- To make the soup, heat the olive oil over medium high heat and add the celery, onions, carrots and cook 5-7 minutes until the vegetables begin to soften. Add the broth, cover the pot and bring to a boil.
- Once the soup is at a boil, turn down the heat a little and slowly add the little chicken dumplings and simmer for about 10 minutes than add the gnocchi and simmer for another 5 minutes. Now add the peas and parsley and continue cooking for another 2 minutes.
- The soup is done when the meatballs and gnocchi are cooked through.

This review is just for the meatballs, as that's all that I needed this time. These are THE BEST meatballs I've ever made, of any kind! I'm new to cooking with ground chicken so I followed your recipe to the letter. They were perfect...so this is one recipe I will never tweak. I made these meatballs to go with recipe #136292 and they held up beautifully, dropped into the simmering sauce. Thank you so much Everything Tasty, for sharing your fantastic recipe!
Oh my goodness gracious. The chicken meatballs are f-a-b-u-l-o-u-s!! Seriously good flavor there. I also really love the gnocchi addition to this soup. Yum!! This soup is a winner and well worth making the meatballs (not even difficult). I ended up using 8 cups of chicken broth to balance out the meatballs, gnocchi, etc... I added a little bit of salt and pepper to the finished product. The only thing I will do differently next time is to cut the meatballs and gnocchi in half, because I like smaller bites - personal preference only. This soup is a winner! Made for Spring 2013 PAC.
