Chicken Soup with Whole Grain Noodles

Perfect for cold and flu season, with plenty of natural flavor and vegetables.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Add all ingredients, except pasta noodles, together in a saucepan and simmer on medium to medium-high for a minimum of 20 minutes, but up to an hour.
  2. During the last 10-12 minutes of cooking, add pasta.
  3. Ladle appropriate portions into bowls and serve hot. Try with fruit salad as a healthy light lunch.
  4. Tip: If you would like to boil your soup longer, you may need to increase the amount of chicken broth used. Keeping a lid on the pot will reduce the need to add more liquid while cooking, but will also bring out the taste of any salt that was in the packaged chicken broth and will highlight the taste of the herbs.

Reviews 
Though this recipe has quite a few carbs in it, it is whole grain and there is lots of protein too. Eaten in moderation, it can be very effective comfort food when you're sick. Try adding green onions or substituting the herbs for other favorites you might have (like bee balm, aka monarda, one of my personal favorites, especially on chicken).
This is very good. The carbs aren't that bad because they are whole grain and are slower to burn. Remember slow carbs not no carbs.
