Easy Chicken Pasta Soup Recipe 2

Hey Foodies,

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you probably know a lot about me by now. But did I ever tell you which are my two favorite seasons and why?

The first is summer and I think everybody knows why we love that, right? I mean, what’s not to love… good weather, salads and holidays on beautiful sunny beaches.

But the second one is … wait for it… autumn. You probably didn’t expect that, did you?

Mostly everybody would choose one of the other two, but I like autumn for a number of reasons, and two in particular.
The first is because of its colors and the second one is that autumn is when we start cooking and eating more comfort food.

There’s nothing I like best than snuggling up for warmth with my loved ones and enjoying delicious comfort food.

And do you know which is my favorite comfort recipe?
Well, it’s a delicious homemade chicken pasta soup which I will show you how to make in just a bit.

Easy Chicken Pasta Soup Recipe

Chicken soup, in general, is a great comfort meal. But if you add pasta to it, you will make it more nourishing.

And the best thing about this chicken pasta soup recipe is that you can make it quick and easy. If you use rotisserie chicken or leftovers you can make it in less than 30 minutes, leaving you more time for snuggling.

I made this chicken soup with pasta and vegetables which are full of nutrients and vitamins to shield you against the cold or the flu. So when you’re done snuggling and decide to face the weather outside, you can rest assured that no bug is going to get you.

It’s worth noting that when you make this tasty chicken soup recipe you shouldn’t use more than 3/4 cup of pasta. It may not seem much at first, but it will absorb the liquid and if it’s too much it will absorb it all, leaving you with chicken pasta and not soup.

I am sure that tastes great too, but that’s a recipe for some other time. For today, we’ll just stick with the soup.

Another thing to keep in mind is that you need to stir constantly and keep an eye on the pot because the pasta can stick to it easily and that would ruin our delicious comfort meal.

But make sure you read the recipe notes as I have included more helpful tips.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil extra-virgin
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 garlic cloves minced or pressed
  • 1 bell pepper diced
  • 1 medium carrot diced
  • 3 celery sticks diced
  • 1 15-Oz/450g Can crushed tomatoes
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup pasta
  • 12 oz. / 350g chicken breast skinless and boneless
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella or your favorite cheese
  • a small bunch of fresh parsley chopped
  • salt and pepper to your taste

Instructions

  1. In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat.

  2. Add in chicken breast and season it with salt and pepper. Cook for about 6-8 minutes on each side, or until golden-brown and cooked through. Remove chicken from the pot and set aside for 10 minutes, then dice it.

  3. In the same pot, add the onion, carrot, celery, bell pepper and garlic. Cook until tender and golden, for about 5-7 minutes.

  4. Add pasta and pour in chicken broth and crushed tomatoes. Stir to combine, then put the lid on and bring to a simmer.  Keep an eye on the pot and stir constantly because the pasta can easily get stuck to the bottom.

  5. Cook until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes, then add chicken and cheese. Taste, and adjust the seasoning.

  6. Top it with more cheese and fresh chopped parsley and serve.

Recipe Notes

  • Once you add the pasta you need to keep an eye on the pot and stir constantly as it can easily get stuck to the bottom.
  • You can make this soup in less than 30 min if you use rotisserie chicken or leftovers.
  • You should use hard cheese (any type you like) because you'll need to shred it for it to melt well. Mozzarella would be your best option but Parmesan, Cheddar or hard goat cheese are great too.
  • Don't use more than 3/4 cup of pasta. It may not seem enough at first, but the pasta will absorb a lot of liquid, and if it's too much it will absorb it all, leaving you with a chicken pasta instead of a soup. Been there, done that, so I speak from experience.
  • If you like it spicy, you can add 1/2 tsp of chili flakes.
