What is for Din-Din???

Tuesday night din-din. Din-Din is the other slang my hubby uses for sup-sup. Slightly annoying, I know, you are talking to to the choir. Anyway, I made this chicken soup adapted from Tyler Florence Ultimate. I substituted gnocchi for the tortellini. If you haven't used gnocchi yet in a soup, you need to. They are soooo yummy. Especially in a chicken based soup. They are tender little potato dumplings that melt in your mouth. Basically the soup was a chicken stock base, carrot, celery, onion, thyme, garlic, bay leaf, italian chicken sausage meatballs and the gnocchi. I then took some roasted garlic bread and spread one side w/some basil pesto, layered roma tomato and a small amount of fresh mozzarella and grilled on the panini press.

Oh we LOVE gnocchi! I will have to try that out! We tried to do homemade gnocchi once.. that didnt work out well. It worked - but not well.. so I will try this with the already made kind!

You can usually find gnocchi in just about any grocery near the pasta section. I would think your city would have it. Do you have a superwalmart?? or a supertarget?? I get it at Fresh Market but my supertarget in Omaha carried it in the dried pasta section.
