With the weather beginning to get cooler, this hot and flavourful soup will bring some serious nostalgia to the table for dinner with this Italian twist on an iconic classic; Chicken Noodle Soup. For as long as I can remember, chicken noodle has been the go to soup. Cold days, feeling sick, or just in search for a hearty meal, all your needs are covered with this super easy and delicious recipe! The best part about this soup is the quantity it makes. If there are any left overs, this soup can be cooled, frozen and stored for about 2 months for later uses! The flavour of the soup will not be compromised, with a super quick and easy alternative to dinner any day of the week!

Simply remove the soup from the freezer, de thaw, and place it in a medium-large pot to simmer for 35-45 minutes. It will taste just as good as the day you made it! The best part is there is absolutely zero prep work here! This recipe makes a big pot of soup so be ready to enjoy it again and again as the months come to get colder!

 

This recipe uses the natural flavours from boiling the chicken to create the perfect broth for your soup! You can always substitute for different veggies, herbs and noodles! Cooking is art, and with millions of flavour combinations, you can really get creative with adding your own spin to any recipe!
