1/4 cup onion, chopped
1/2 celery stick, diced
1/3 cup carrots, shredded

Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, celery, carrot and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion becomes translucent. Add flour, thyme, pinch of salt, parsley and cook for about 1 minute. Whisk in the chicken broth. Stir chicken, and gnocchi. Add milk, bring to boil. Add spinach and remove from heat. Let stay about minute until spinach is wilted. Serve hot.
