    Quick, easy and very good. You may get a burn notice because it is thick and the gnocchi sinks to the bottom, but it will come up to pressure first and with a time of zero minutes it is done before the burn impacts anything.

    I make a variation of this soup. I add the flour and half&half after a npr. The carrots, celery, onion and garlic i saute first. I cook it with the soup function for 15mins. Just like the Olive Gardens famous soup.

    Hi TumeysKat,

    The cooking time is set to 0 minutes but it will still need time to come to pressure; which is not included in the ) minute cook time.
