Ingredients:
One baked chicken
frozen peas and carrots
40 ounces of chicken broth
two cans of cream of chicken
12 oz egg noodles

Directions:
Boil then shred chicken. Heat broth, then add peas, carrots and noodles. Simmer until veggies and noodles are tender ( about 8 minutes). Add cream of chicken soup, milk, salt, pepper and shredded chicken. Simmer until heated through and ready to serve.

Note: May I suggest adding 2 more cups of chicken broth or water to make more broth in the finished product. A lot boiled out during while the noodles cooked.

Also, I’ve always served this with a biscuit let’s just say it’s the icing on one delicious cake!

Lasagna Soup

This is seriously good soup! I found this recipe on Pinterst by the Deen Bros — I love it Paula Deen’s sons have started a website where they take their mom’s recipes and make them healthy! Best foodie find ever!!

Ingredients:

2 teaspoons olive oil
1 pound ground turkey
1 onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 (32-ounce) container chicken broth
1 (15-ounce) can tomato sauce
1 (14 1/2-ounce) can petite diced tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
4 ounces broken whole-wheat lasagna noodles (about 4 noodles)
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup reduced-fat shredded mozzarella cheese
8 Whole-wheat breadsticks or grissini (optional)

Instructions:

Heat the oil over medium-high heat in a large nonstick saucepan or Dutch oven. Add the sausage, onion, bell pepper, and garlic. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until the sausage is crumbled and browned, 8 – 10 minutes.

(This part would work well in a crockpot too!) Add the broth, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, salt, and crushed red pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the flavors are blended, about 20 minutes. Add the noodles; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the soup thickens slightly and the noodles are tender, 10 – 12 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in mozzarella, basil, and the Parmesan. Serve with the whole grain bread.
