Turkey Sausage Gnocchi Soup #Recipe

Turkey Sausage Gnocchi Soup

Today I am highlighting a soup I love for fall that was shared by a friend a few years ago. If you’re like me {a.k.a. a bottomless pit when it comes to food}, you may stay away from soup as a meal. I assure you, this one has enough heavier ingredients to stick to your ribs, but isn’t too indulgent in the calorie department. {If you want that, you must try my crock pot broccoli cheese soup…nom!}

I also enjoy how this soup can easily be made higher quality, or inexpensively if you are on a budget. Personally, I know I could get all these ingredients from Aldi for about $8-$10 for everything. Woohoo! With that said, if I bought fresh meat and REAL gnocchi, it could be made a little higher end. Love when recipes give my wallet some wiggle room. Since we’re approaching the end of the month here, we went the cheap route this time around 😉

Simply serve this with a French baguette slightly warm, and voila! The perfect quick and easy meal for fall.

Plus, I just love saying ‘gnocchi’ {pronounced knee-o-kie}. Isn’t that fun?!

Turkey Sausage Gnocchi Soup1


  • 3 links turkey Italian sausage {hot is awesome! I just get the Jennie-O brand from Aldi}
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 – 16/17 oz package of gnocchi
  • 1 can of fat-free, less-sodium beef broth
  • 1 can chopped Italian-style stewed tomatoes, undrained {Or, if you only have plain tomatoes, add in 1/2 tsp of oregano}
  • Parmesan cheese


Remove casings from sausage. Cook sausage over medium-high heat until sausage is browned, stirring to crumble. Drain fat from the meat if needed.

Bonus points: My kids like it too! For my 14-month-old, I just serve the chunks without the broth so it’s easy for her to pick it up and feed herself.

Not sure what’s up with this kid and her love for soup, but I’ll take it! Even if she acts like a pirate while eating it…
