Super Fast Lemon Chicken Noodle Soup

I learned this version of chicken soup from my favorite Italian TV chef, Giada, long ago.  Oh, how I love her simple and tasty Italian-inspired dishes!  And this soup is no exception.  It takes 15 minutes to make and is the freshest chicken soup I have ever tasted, thanks to the lemon.  And if you’re sick, the lemon in the soup is just that much better.

  • Rotisserie checken breasts, cubed
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 2 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 2 lemons juiced
  • 8-12 ounces of uncooked spaghetti (or other pasta of choice)
  • fresh parsley, handful
  • 1 cup parmesan, shredded or shaved
  • salt to taste

In a large pot, combine all the ingredients and cook to a low boil for 10 minutes (or until the pasta is tender).  Serve.  yep, that’s it!

    Always loved this soup since I was a child – haven’t made it in years – probably time to start again with this new recipe – the lemon is a new ingredient for me
