This Soul-Satisfying Soup Needs Just 3 Ingredients

This comforting tomato soup is a meal all on its own — no grilled cheese required. The secret is my favorite Trader Joe’s freezer find. Most grocery stores sells pre-made gnocchi, but only Trader Joe’s stuffs theirs with sauce and cheese. There’s no need to thaw the Outside-In Stuffed Gnocchi for this soup. Add them straight from the freezer to a pot of simmering tomato soup and cook until they are heated through. Just before serving, stir in two big handfuls of fresh baby spinach, and wait mere seconds for the leaves to wilt before ladling into bowls.
