Chicken Noodle Soup

  
Living in Chicago in the winter requires a nice, HOT SOUP for a meal!! This recipe definitely hit the spot!! Adding the chicken powder gave it a lot of flavor.  You can add whole wheat crackers for some crunch!  Your family will love it and it's great for lunch the next day!

- 2 cups whole wheat pasta, bow tie (uncooked)

- salt/pepper to taste

- tbsp olive oil


Directions:

1.  Add the onion, carrots, parsley, chicken, celery, garlic, olive oil, chicken broth salt, pepper, chicken powder to your crockpot. Cook on low for 7 hours or 4 hours on high.
2. Remove chicken and either cut into pieces or shred with a fork. Add chicken back to the crockpot and add pasta (uncooked). Cook for another hour on high or until noodles are cooked. *If you don't want to wait 1 hour for the noodles to cook in the crockpot, you can cook the pasta on the side and just throw in the crockpot.
