chicken noodle soup


With a little one sick...and the frigid temperatures outside...
I decided to make some chicken soup.

I began with roasting a few vegetables- onions (2), cellery, a few small carrots (they were all I had in the house), and parsnips!  This was the first time I had ever cooked with them...and they are a new favorite roasted vegetable!!!!!  I loved them!  I topped all of this with sea salt, minced garlic, rosemary, paprika and plenty of olive oil!  They went straight to the oven (around 375 degrees) until they were tender.

After the vegetables were roasted I chopped them in the pan.  I emptied the rest of the white wine I had on hand (a few cups) and about 10 cups of chicken broth.  I boiled this together and began making the noodles.  I used this recipe.  It was a little dry for me.  I want to try this one next time!  I don't have a pasta maker (yet!) so I rolled and cut the dough by hand.  They were a little too thick for me.  

While I lived in Argentina I had the most AMAZING!!!!! handmade pasta!!!!!  AMAZING!!!!!!!  I have never had anything like it since.  I want to recreate it!  I am going to practice!  We love pasta!  :)

After I cut the pasta...added it to the broth and vegetables...I cut up a roasted chicken (cooked from Costco) and added large pieces to it.  Aaaaah...hot soup!  It was Danny's favorite!!!!!!!

Oh my, that looks fabulous! John makes homemade noodles every fast Sunday and we cook them in chicken broth and call them "bumpy noodles" and our kids devour them. I do have a pasta maker but John prefers to make them by hand--says they taste better. Last week I was craving your soup and ended up buying the homemade tub at Costco which was good but yours looks amazing!

Can I come have chicken soup at your house? Chicken soup at our house usually comes out of the can. Although I am finishing off some crockpot turkey stew. That's about as ambitious as I get with my soups and stews.
