Nothing cures a sickness like chicken noodle soup

Chicken noodle soup is one of my favorites. It’s a classic and perfect for a cold day, a sick day or any day. There thousands of recipes out there for it. I’ve tried a few and am happy to report this is one of my favorites.  It takes a little bit of time to roast the veggies, but it’s pretty easy to prepare and it tastes pretty good too.

*Disclaimer: This soup does not cure most sicknesses, but it’s a good excuse to make it for a friend or family member.
