Nothing beats a big bowl of comfort food soup on a chilly day! Although, I did also make this soup in July! But hey, making it in my crock pot kept my kitchen nice and cool!
Slow Cooker Creamy Sausage Gnocchi Soup recipe is very easy to make! Just brown the sausage in a skillet, then add it to the crock pot with the other soup ingredients, and cook it! When it is almost done cooking, add the thickener, cook a little longer, then add the cream and some fresh spinach.
Then be prepared to have a super delicious meal!
If you want to, you can use kale in place of the spinach. If you do, just add it in about 30 minutes before serving for softer kale, or at the end if you just want it wilted a bit.
