    i was hoping the soup would be creamier....probably wouldn't use as much water next time. - 8/11/10

    I couldn't find gnocchi the first time, so I used dumplings. It was wonderful. I did find gnocchi finally (at F&E) and made it again and it was great! I added a little garlic, basil, oregano and thyme the second time. Can't wait to eat the leftovers! - 2/21/10

    This was ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! Very filling and low in calories. It tastes just like the Olive Garden's Gnocchi Soup... but a lot better! I definitely would recommend this to everyone and anybody. No need to change the recipe, it's perfect! :] - 2/20/10
