Mommy, I don’t feel good.

Whenever my boys don’t feel well, they always want soup.  I mean, who doesn’t want soup when they are feeling under the weather?  Soup really does just make you feel better!

One night, they asked for “noodle soup” so I threw together a tasty soup from whatever I could find in the fridge.  This soup couldn’t be more simple – absolutely nothing fancy, but the boys loved it.   I make this for them all the time now, even when they aren’t feeling sick.



  • 1/4 cup diced onion or shallots
  • 1/4 cup carrots, diced small
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 2 1/2 cup fat free, low sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup small pasta, such as ditalini
  • 3/4 cup diced chicken, cooked (I used a leftover rotisserie chicken)
  • 1-2 Tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • salt & pepper
  • fresh chopped parsley


  1. Melt butter in large sauce pan, add onions and carrots.  Sauté for 5 minutes.
  2. Add chicken broth and water, bring to a boil.
  3. Once the broth is boiling, add diced chicken and pasta, parmesan cheese, salt & pepper.
  4. Cook until pasta is al dente.  Stir in fresh chopped parsley.

    The soup looks yummy. I beleive roticery chicken adds the best flavor to chicken soup. Your cousins STILL ask me to make chicken soup whenever they don’t feel well. I’d like to suggest adding 1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper. It helps clear sinuses and adds great flavor too. A dash will do if 1/4 tsp is too much for kids.
