Ingredients

This is a family favorite and it is so very filling. You can make this with cooked chicken, carnitas or ground beef. 

  • 4 tablespoons Butter
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup finely diced onion
  • 1/2 cup finely diced celery

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 quart half-and-half or whole milk
  • 28 ounces chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup carrots finely shredded
  • 1 cup spinach leaves coarsely chopped
  • 1 pound cooked hamburger
  • 16 ounces package ready-to-use gnocchi
  1. Melt the butter into the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the onion, celery, and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally until the onion becomes translucent.
  2. Whisk in the flour and cook for about 1 minute.
  3. Whisk in the half-and-half or the whole milk. Simmer until thickened.
  4. Whisk in the chicken broth. Simmer until thickened again.
