Take-out Tuesday 3 Ingredient Tomato Gnocchi & Spinach Soup with Garlic Crescents

When I saw this recipe for Trader Joe’s 3 ingredient soup,

it went directly to the top of my must do list!

And paired with 4 ingredient Garlic Crescent Rolls,

dinner can literally be on the table in minutes

The tomato soup is heat and eat,

Stuffed Gnocchi is full of tomato sauce and mozzarella,

and fresh baby spinach adds a pop of color

Don’t worry if you don’t have a Trader Joe’s near you,

this will work with what you can find in your local grocery store too

Look for prepared tomato soup,

fresh or frozen gnocchi, and fresh spinach

Heat the soup until it is hot and just bubbling,

adjusting heat so it doesn’t boil

Add frozen gnocchi and let the hot soup cook the gnocchi,

about 8-10 minutes

Stir in baby spinach leaves

They will immediately wilt down,

continue cooking for a minute or two

That’s it!

Top with Parmesan and serve it up!

Add some easy 4 ingredient garlic crescent rolls for dipping

Melt butter and add garlic seasoning

Place the dough triangles on a sheet pan

and brush liberally with the garlic butter

Roll up and brush garlic butter over the rolls

Top with shredded Parmesan

Bake and serve!
