Zuppa di Gnocchi e Pesto
Due to a very popular coupon show on television, there’s this misconception that couponers eat very poorly. We seem to exist on candy bars, Yakisoba noodles, and mustard. Clearly, we could not live a very long period of time on that type of diet. Protein and vegetables are very important to a healthy diet. And I can assure you that the people you see on television are eating meats and produce. You just won’t see them buying it on television because it would drive their out of pocket up.
But I’m here to assure you that you can eat a healthy diet and coupon at the same time. The recipe I’m going to share with you today illustrates this nicely. Soup. Hearty, satisfying soup that will make everyone smile.
I love soup. Any kind of soup. Bisque, stew, chowder. The heartier, the better. I also love soups that are affordable to make. So, when I saw Mama Rosie’s frozen pasta products free after catalina this week at Stop and Shop, I knew it was time to whip up a new recipe to share with you.
Zuppa di Gnocchi e Pesto is a great way to incorporate pantry and freezer staples into a hearty meal. For this recipe (which is at the end of this post) I grabbed chicken broth and jarred pesto out of my pantry, and chicken breast and gnocchi out of my freezer. A simple combination of great flavors that create a soup which will surely please the entire family.
So starts fall. Soup, pumpkin, fresh baked goods, and many other warm your soul recipes. This is my favorite time of the year and I plan on sharing lots of wonderful new recipes with you over the upcoming weeks. While I get physical therapy to help my body heal, kitchen therapy is my own way of healing my heart and soul. Enjoy!
