Not Chicken Noodle Soup-(gf,df,sf,ef)

The beginning of the year has been a challenge,
with a severe cold (sinusitis?) hitting me hard.
Down for over a week,
the best thing I could do was rest, eat right and rest some more.

This is one of the newest soup recipes in my repertoire.
It's hearty, comforting and really hits the spot
whether or not you are feeling your best.
It's a snap to put together and will keep in the fridge for a good week,
if it lasts that long.
It reminds me of pot pie, but it has the addition of pasta.
The bonus is that it can be made gluten-free 
by subbing out gf flour and gf pasta for those listed
in the original recipe.
I also omitted a couple of the herbs,
as I didn't have them on hand.
If you're under the weather,
it'll make you feel a whole lot better.

  1. It definitely feels like soup kind of weather. I'll give this one a try. This winter has been a rough ones for colds and such. I hope you are on the upswing.
