So, in the interest of letting you get straight to the cooking, here it is. A photo gallery with (mostly) step-by-step pictures is at the bottom.

  • Spatula
  • Medium pot (~1gal)
  • Colander


  • 1 32oz carton Trader Joe's Organic Creamy Tomato Soup
  • 1 16oz package Trader Joe's frozen Outside-In Stuffed Gnocchi
  • 1 lb fresh or frozen spinach


  • Pour soup into sauce pan and start heating on medium-low heat, about 1/3 power on an electric stove. Stir occasionally to prevent burning onto the bottom of the pan.

Fresh Spinach

  • Prep fresh spinach by rinsing thoroughly in a colander and pinching off any stems or wilted bits.

Frozen spinach

  • Prep frozen spinach by placing in a microwave-safe bowl and microwaving for 1-2 minutes or until thawed. Line colander with a paper towel or stain-okay kitchen towel, put the colander in the sink, and press the water out of the spinach.
  • Once the soup is warmed, add the gnocchi and cook until tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Once the gnocchi is thawed and warmed, stir in the spinach and stir until wilted.
  • Serve hot.


To add more protein, thaw frozen microwave meatballs and stir in with the spinach.
Other frozen gnocchi can be substituted as long as it's frozen.
