Step By Step Instructions
STEP 1 - COOK VEGGIES AND ADD FLOUR
First, melt your butter and olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Then, cook carrots, onions, and peppers for about 3 minutes or until tender.
Add zucchini and garlic and cook for an additional minute. Stir in flour and cook for 3 minutes, stirring constantly, creating a thick mixture.
STEP 2 - ADD CHICKEN BROTH, CHICKEN, HERBS and SPICES, and NOODLES
Now, turn the heat down to medium-low and gradually add 8 cups of chicken broth, stirring constantly. Whisk together cornstarch with 1 cup of remaining chicken broth and stir into soup.
Add cooked chicken, chicken bouillon, and herbs and spices to the pot. Stir in broken lasagna noodles.
STEP 3 - SIMMER
Bring the pot back to a boil and then reduce to a simmer until lasagna noodles are cooked through, about 20-30 minutes. Stir occasionally so the noodles don't stick to the bottom of the pot.
STEP 4 - ADD HALF AND HALF, HEAVY CREAM and SPINACH
Next, turn the heat down to low and discard bay leaves. Pour in half and half, optional heavy cream, and spinach, and let warm. Stir in Parmesan cheese. Add additional salt and pepper if needed.
STEP 5 - GARNISH
Garnish with mozzarella cheese and additional parmesan cheese, and enjoy!
Expert Tips & Tricks
- To make this one-pot meal, start with a roasted chicken to make it even easier, but you can certainly cook your chicken at home before adding it to the recipe.
- Don't worry about breaking the noodles evenly before putting them in the soup. No one will know the difference once it's cooked!
- We use whole wheat noodles for a little nutrition boost, but you can certainly use regular if that's what your family prefers.
- You can also use a small shell pasta like macaroni, bow tie, or penne in the recipe.
Since this soup recipe is a one-pot wonder (you saute and veggies in the same pot you cook the rest of the soup), clean-up is a breeze!
A bonus for us busy moms!
