Chicken Noodle Soup
After nearly taking a year off of blogging I am back! I really missed my food blog and I am going to try my hardest to keep posting clean and healthy recipes. Fall is here and warm comforting foods are in order. Here is a family favorite, healthy homemade Chicken Noodle Soup.
1 package of fresh linguini pasta
2 32oz containers of chicken broth
3 cups of chopped rotisserie chicken
4 whole carrots chopped
4 celery stalks chopped
1/2 of a yellow onion chopped
4 cloves of garlic minced
5 mini white potatoes, quartered
2 Tbs. pre made basil pesto
Fresh Tarragon and Marjoram (add as much as you would like)
Salt and pepper to taste
Chop up all of your vegetables and toss them into a large soup pot. Add the basil pesto to the vegetables and let them simmer for 5 minutes at medium heat to soften them up a bit. Add your chicken stock at this time along with your chopped chicken and your fresh herbs, salt and pepper. Let your soup simmer at med high heat covered for at least one full hour. At the very last minute add your fresh pasta to your soup and bring to a boil, just long enough to cook your pasta. Serve hot with a crusty bread.
