Is there anything more comforting than chicken noodle soup? Every time I think about this soup, I want to make a pot! The ingredients are simple, super nourishing, and it takes about 45 minutes from start to finish. It's also very inexpensive to make which is a plus. Way better than canned soup, thats for sure!
This is a minimal effort soup with big flavour. Since we're not making chicken broth from scratch here, I'd reccommend buying a high quality organic chicken broth. Don't be shy to season your soup and be generous with the herbs too! Taste, and season with salt to your liking. You could also use of a mix of chicken thighs/breast meat if you prefer!
One last note about the pasta. I am all about the chickpea pasta, but I like to cook the it separately, then add it to the bowls. I find this prevents the pasta from overcooking and falling apart, as chickpea pasta can be quite fragile. Adding the chickpea pasta right to the soup also makes the broth very thick and starchy. Feel free to swap out for any other type of pasta you like. Leftover rice of quinoa would also be delcious!
