Sickie's Chicken Noodle Soup


With fall comes the first cold. Stuffy head, scratchy throat, and a desire to lay low.

And a desire for chicken soup.

Easy to make, tasty ... and restorative.

Sickie's Chicken Noodle Soup

1 cup rotini (or other bite-sized pasta)
49 oz. low-sodium, low-fat chicken broth
1 medium onion, diced
3 carrots, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch rounds
3 large stalks celery, chopped
1 to 1/2 cups cooked chicken, diced
salt and pepper to taste

Prepare pasta according to package directions. Place onion and broth in a pan over high heat and bring to a boil. Add carrots, celery, and chicken and reduce to a simmer. Cook until vegatables are tender. Drain pasta and add to soup. Season soup to taste and enjoy.

Grade: A

Sounds v. comforting. As for the photo - is it wrong to say that I took one look and burst out laughing?

Hope you get better soon!
