Hearty Chicken Pasta Soup

Home  >>  Soups & Salads  >>  Hearty Chicken Pasta Soup

Few days back we went to meet a friend and on the way since we were hungry , we stop by and bought some Chicken soup and bagel from a place called Maccafe . I ate bagel and my Ka had this chicken soup, he asked me to taste the soup and it was delicious . I was sick for past two days and was craving for the same soup so I decided to make it at home , googled few recipes and came up with my own  🙂 the way I want to have it .I feel like I should seriously make batches of this soup and just keep them in my freezer for the next time I’m feeling sick 😛 When I am sick I don’t feel like eating but I can drink ( not alcohol 😛 ) for sure , and this is the best dinner option. It’s light, simple, easy, delicious and super healthy.
