This sounds wonderful! My Italian husband loves gnocchi. How much does this recipe make??? I’d love to can it. With the cream and gnocchi, I know those ingredients would have to be added when reheating to serve. My problem is determining how much of each to add to each quart of the base. I’m at a loss there without knowing the initial volume of soup with those items included. Thank you in advance for your help!!!
