penicillin soup

I don't know about you, but colds seem to stick around for a long time in our house. All soups, especially, penicillin soup, seem to satisfy everyone in our house whether it is to warm us up or mend a nasty cold. Penicillin soup is a perfect blend of comfort with a kick of flavor. The recipe is below. Enjoy!

Penicillin Soup:
3 carrots chopped 
2 celery stalks chopped
2 cups extra wide egg noodles
1 cup broccoli florets
1/2 cup chopped onion
3-4 cups Swanson chicken broth
3-4 cups water
Salt and pepper to taste
A dash of red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon ground thyme
1 cup shredded chicken

Wash, peel and cut the carrots, cut the celery and add ALL ingredients to a large pot. I typically buy a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store and easily tear all the chicken off.  I also buy frozen broccoli florets. Use equal parts chicken broth and water. In most pots, I use 3 cups of each. Heat to boiling and when vegetables are tender, serve. It is sure to warm you up!
