Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 25 mins
Total: 30 mins


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 piece turkey bacon, diced
  • 4 carrots, chopped
  • 3 celery stalks, with leafy parts, chopped
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 6 cloves garlic, roasted
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme, minced
  • 1 tbsp fresh rosemary, minced
  • 1/4 cup red wine, preferably cabernet
  • 1 can tomatoes, large, with liquid, diced
  • 1 can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cup gnocchi, store-bought or hand-made
  • 4 cup chicken broth
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, minced

For Meatballs:

  • 1 ½ lb ground turkey
  • 1 egg
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flake
  • 1 tbsp fresh rosemary, minced
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme, minced
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 lemon, juiced and zested


  1. Combine ingredients for the meatball mixture and set aside. Heat oil in a large dutch oven over medium heat and add the bacon.

  2. Cook until crisp, about 5-7 minutes. Remove bacon and drain on paper towel, set aside. Next add the carrots, celery, onion, roasted garlic, bay leaves, fresh thyme and rosemary and let cook another 5-7 minutes.

  3. Deglaze pan with red wine and let cook for 1 minute before adding the canned tomatoes, garbanzo beans, broth, salt and pepper.

  4. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer and begin forming meatballs and dropping them into the soup. Also add the gnocchi and let simmer for 7-10 minutes, until both meatballs and gnocchi are floating to the top.

  5. Return bacon to the soup and garnish with fresh parsley just before serving.
