Calabrian Tomato Gnocchi Soup

We all know I love using Trader Joe’s products to make slightly elevated home cooked meals. However, I also love re-making Trader Joe’s products/meals at home. You never know when Trader Joe’s is going to take something off the shelves so having a copy cat version to make at home is necessary. I love their calabrian chili tomato dumpling soup. It’s probably my favorite soup they have there. This one is pretty close and super easy to make!

I used Silk dairy free heavy whipping cream for this recipe. However, any heavy cream will work for this! Also, any calabrian chili paste will work. I love Trader Joe’s Italian bomba sauce. It’s affordable and super delicious.
