2) Bring to a full boil, stir in gnocchi and, cooking until the gnocchi are al dente, two to three minutes.
3) Stir in frozen peas and chicken and turn off the heat. Season with salt; take into consideration that Parmesan cheese is salty, and a generous amount of pepper, to taste. Ladle the soup into warmed shallow bowls and shower each with freshly grated cheese.
