chicken noodle soup in red pot with spoon

That perfect bowl of cozy, healing soup is all I want once fall hits 🙂 I know I needed something cozy to share for the 1st of October- one of my favorite months. Basic, I know! But I am so obsessed with all things fall. Especially the warm and cozy food! This one is a little ode to the Sicilian side of my big Italian family 🙂

This soup is one of those recipes you can sort of just dump in a pot and forget about while it’s cooking! It’s easy, nourishing, satisfying, and so flavorful. I love it so much!

I used a chickpea noodle for mine, but you can use any noodle you like! I recommend a legume based noodle, gluten free brown rice or quinoa based, or a whole grain pasta if you don’t require gluten free.

this soup is also a really affordable meal to make! it uses chicken thighs, which are cheaper than chicken breasts but provide so much flavor (and good protein). It also uses simple veggies like carrots, celery, and potatoes.

A great meal prep staple, or an easy weeknight dinner to throw together after a busy day. The whole fam will love this one!
