We had a soup buffet for my daughter's birthday party and this was one of the three. I'm sorry to say that this seemed to be the least favorite. It was pretty good but a lot salty to my taste. I'd make it again with some alterations I guess. Read More

Great soup! I had a cold and instead of downing a can of condensed chicken noodle soup I thought I'd make some from scratch. I love spinach so this was right up my alley and the tortellini was a nice twist as well! I made a few variations---limited the onions and celery just because I'm not a huge fan. I did use fresh spinach instead of frozen and it worked just fine. Instead of meat I used a three cheese tortellini and omitted the egg noodles (too much pasta). Finally I didn't go through the trouble of taking the chicken off the bone (thought it made the soup more "hearty" and it falls right off anyway) and I also added a couple teaspoons of butter. All in all---this was a fantastic recipe! I served it with garlic bread and it tasted event better for lunch the next day!!! Read More

Now THIS is chicken noodle soup!!!!! I start with a whole chicken & boil it till done. Iadded a tsp. of poultry seasoning. No tortellini but egg noodles were handy. Yummy comfort food. I just took a kettle of this to a friend who is sick with cold/flu crud. After 1 bowl she said she felt better already! Thanks for sharing the best chicken noodle soup! Read More
