Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe
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!

Saute the veggies. Once they are softened, add the rest of the ingredients and let simmer until ready to serve. Mmm!
I love using the Ditalini pasta. You can also use spaghetti noodles or any other small pasta you prefer. Enjoy!
