Monday, November 29, 2010

Here's a super easy and delicious soup that can be whipped up in no time!  I got this recipe from my mom, and it is so delicious served up with a sprinkling of parmesan cheese and some crusty bread!  Yum!

Chicken Soup with Acini de Pepe
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 6 cups chicken stock or broth
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup uncooked acini de pepe  or other small pasta
  • 1 lb bag baby spinach
  • 2 tbsp. dried Italian herbs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
In a large soup pot or dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium high heat.  Saute the onion, garlic, carrots, and the celery about 5 minutes or until onions are translucent.  Add the chicken and saute another 2-3 minutes.   Add the stock, the herbs, and the tomatoes.   Bring to a boil, turn down heat to medium low and simmer 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.  Add the acini de pepe and cook another 7-10 minutes or until al dente.  Finally, add the spinach and simmer in the soup until just wilted.  Serve with a sprinkling of delicious Parmesan cheese!

Until next time, happy and HEALTHY cooking and EATING!
