It’s COLD here in the Midwest so I thought some soup sounded good.  I don’t have as many choices as I used to since I have to avoid dairy, gluten, onion and garlic.  But I found this one and it hit the spot.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 (32-ounce) carton chicken broth (check for gluten)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup chopped onion (1)
  • ½ cup chopped celery (1)
  • 1 medium carrot, chopped (2)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 6 ounces gluten-free fusilli (short twisted spaghetti) (3)
  • 2-1/2 cups shredded skinless, boneless rotisserie chicken breast (check for gluten) (4)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

Directions:

Combine 2 cups water and chicken broth in a microwave-save dish and microwave at HIGH 5 minutes. (5)

While broth mixture heats, heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat.  Add oil to pan; swirl to coat.  Add onion, celery, carrot, salt and pepper; sauté 3 minutes or until almost tender.  Add hot broth mixture and pasta; bring to a boil.  Cook 7 minutes or until pasta is almost al dente.  Stir in chicken; cook 1 minute or until thoroughly heated.  Stir in parsley.

Notes:

(1)     I omitted.

(2)     I used about four carrots.  I also added a whole zucchini, chopped and some fresh spinach.

(3)     I didn’t have fusilli so I used penne.

(4)     I cooked my own chicken and seasoned it with just salt and pepper.

(5)     I wasn’t in a hurry so I skipped the microwave step.  I sautéed the vegetables (except spinach), added broth, brought to a boil and then added pasta.  Once pasta was nearly cooked, I added chicken and spinach.
