Spinach Chicken Noodle Soup

Yield: 6 cups Start to Finish 35 mins


  • 2 teaspoons  olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon  minced garlic
  • 3 13 1/4 - 14 1/2ounce cans chicken broth
  • 1 8 - 10 ounce  boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1 1 1/2inch piece rind from Parmesan cheese, or 1-inch cube Parmesan cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • Pinch ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup  dried tiny star pasta or 3/4 cup broken dried thin spaghetti
  • 2 cups  packed julienned spinach leaves
  • 6 tablespoons  freshly grated Parmesan cheese


1. Heat oil in large saucepan over medium-low heat. Add garlic and cook until fragrant (do not brown). Stir in broth, chicken, Parmesan rind, pepper and nutmeg. Bring just to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken and set aside. Remove and discard cheese rind (if using).

2. Increase heat to high. Add pasta and boil, stirring occasionally, until tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Meanwhile, chop chicken into 1/2-inch dice.

3. Return chicken to soup; add spinach. Spoon into bowls and sprinkle with grated Parmesan. Makes 6 cups.
