“Comforting any time of year. This soup has a delicious flavor that appeals to adults and kids alike. In the summer, I use my garden tomatoes to make the tomato puree for this soup, which really brings out the flavors. The combination of the dried and fresh herbs is the most flavorful, but all dried herbs could be used if fresh herbs are not available. Great for a meal with sandwiches or a cobb salad.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large stock pot, combine the chicken broth, tomato puree, garlic powder, dried oregano, dried basil, salt, pepper, and Tabasco sauce (go easy on the Tabasco to start - you can always add more later). Bring to a simmer on medium heat, stirring occasionally. Simmer for ten minutes.
  2. Stir in the fresh basil, fresh oregano, and chicken. Continue simmering for another five minutes.
  3. Turn the heat up to medium-high to bring the soup to a boil. Add the soup pasta and cook according to package directions.
  4. Remove from heat, and serve with grated parmesan cheese and/or garlic-flavored croutons.
  5. Refrigerate or freeze any leftovers.
