This Pesto Chicken Noodle Soup is perfect for busy weeknights. Simple to prepare and full of great flavor!
Pesto Chicken Noodle Soup

There’s nothing like a warm bowl of soup simmering on the stove ready for dinner.  I’m kind of in love with this new soup I developed last week.  It’s  got so much flavor you won’t believe how little time it takes to prepare.  Weeknight dinners can be so stressful, which is why I love new fast soup recipes!

You’ve got a few options depending on how much time you have.  I used the Costo canned chicken this time, you can bake your own chicken or even shred a rotisserie chicken.

You can even look for pre-chopped vegetables.  I can find mine at Trader Joe’s but have seen them at the regular grocery store as well.  Makes for a speedy soup!
