This little soup turned out to be so easy and so good. It made a nice pot full and served with warm french bread or crunchy croutons...it's just perfect! If you don't have gnocchi on hand, use noodles or rice...just adjust your cooking time. A really yummy soup!

2 32-ounce packages chicken stock
2 - 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

2 cloves garlic ~ minced
1 cup chopped carrots
2 medium zucchini ~ large dice
2 medium yellow squash ~ large dice
1 16-ounce package gnocchi (use half and freeze the rest)

salt and pepper to taste
In a large stock pot, saute the onion, carrots and garlic in a little olive oil for about 5 minutes.
Pour in the chicken stock.
Add the chicken breasts and seasonings and cook until chicken is done, about 20 minutes.
Remove chicken from the pot to a plate and allow to cool.
