Watch out Campbell's

A couple of weeks ago Kyndal said she wished there was a chicken noodle soup that didn't have all those chunky vegetables .. you know just chicken and noodles.  (Yes, most of my children are anti-vegetable!!)  I make chicken and noodles all the time, with egg noodles, but she basically wanted Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup with no celery chunks.

So, I imagined what natural ingredients were in Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup and set out to make it myself.


I used the chicken and chicken broth I talked about in a previous post.  I heated up the chicken broth (which was about 8 cups), added about 16 more cups water and a can of cream of celery soup for additional flavor. Then I added about 1/3 of my shredded whole chicken and a package of linguine noodles broken into about 3 inch pieces.   I added salt and pepper to taste and VOILA!  It was so good!!  She loved it!  And, it made a ton!  We had enough for dinner last night, Rick and I had it for lunch today, and there's enough for the two of us to have it for lunch on Monday.  And, seriously, it didn't cost more than $3.00 for all of that.  and it was healthy!!
