Chicken, pasta and vegetable soup

    A super-hearty soup, which is simple to make and tastes delicious. Chicken is simmered with carrots, potatoes and pasta in a tomato soup base. Serve with crusty fresh bread, if desired. It's the perfect winter warmer.

    My son and his friend are not fond of onions and gave this soup 4 stars. My husband and I both thought it was a wonderful 5 star soup. I did use 1 lb of chicken and added a little more water and hot sauce. I also added some chicken buillion granules. Thanks Kat!  -  07 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    An easy soup to make with great flavor. Perfect for a cold winter night. I used elbow pasta instead of seashells, and added 1/2 cup frozen corn, it worked out well. This soup would probably freeze well too.  -  05 Dec 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
