Cozy Chicken and Stars Soup.

This cozy chicken and stars soup is the ultimate comfort meal. Rich broth, tender chicken and pasta stars mixed with vegetables, lemon and parmesan cheese. This is the most wonderful lovely dinner!

It’s officially soup season!

We’re kicking things off with this cozy chicken and stars soup: a classic, traditional bowl of comfort food that everyone loves. Chicken noodle soup made with mini pasta stars, a spritz of fresh lemon, parmesan and herbs. 

This is super delicious and crave worthy.

Can we talk about how adorable these little pasta stars are? I could make all the things with these (I’m thinking my homemade spaghettios, for sure) and according to the kids, they make mealtime more fun. I couldn’t agree more. 

My favorite thing about this fun pasta shape is how it transforms the soup. We love traditional chicken noodle soup – who doesn’t?! The big soft egg noodles, bites of carrot and chicken, it’s fabulous.

But when you use a tiny cut of pasta like this stelline, everything is bite-sized. It reminds me of eating a chopped salad where you get a taste of everything in one bite! Which is my favorite thing and the best way to eat salads and soup. 

The small cut of pasta also makes the soup feel heartier. Even though it’s a brothy soup, it feels richer and more hearty since the ingredients are small enough to fit on one spoon. It’s basically perfect.

I based this recipe on my chicken and orzo soup which is also one of our all-time favorites. The recipe includes a splash of fresh lemon juice, a parmesan rind and fresh herbs like parsley. These things make all the difference!

They make the soup taste elevated and fancy, even though it’s really pretty simple.

And not only is it simple, but it is easy too.

If I’m making this on a weeknight, I’ll often use a rotisserie chicken for ease. It’s my go-to hack during busy weeks and I usually have one in the fridge for recipes just like this. As long as you use a good quality stock, add the lemon, parmesan, herbs and vegetables, this soup will be packed with flavor.

If you’d like to make it ahead of time or store leftovers, I suggest cooking the pasta separately and storing the soup base and pasta separately as well. It’s as easy as that. Then when it’s time to eat, you combine the pasta and broth.  (more…)
