A cliche worth perpetuating, we give you chicken noodle soup! Maybe it’s because I’m feeling under the weather, but this recipe seems particularly timely. When spring rolls around and the snow begins to melt, I inevitably get sick.
There is some evidence to suggest that bone broth really can help with illness, but even if it didn’t, there’s something comforting about a warm bowl of chicken noodle soup when you’re sick. Not to mention, it’s delicious any time!
Pasta is one of those things that’s just so easy to pour from a box, but homemade pasta is so good, and you get to decide the ingredients you’re comfortable with. We’re huge fans of einkorn pasta and want to share it with all of you.
We understand that homemade pasta is a bit of an endeavour, hence the HUGE soup recipe. Even if you don’t have many mouths to feed, soup is a great thing to freeze and break out on thse crazy days or when you’re sick and don’t feel like cooking. Another thing you can do is make more pasta than you need, and then dry and store what you don’t use. With the classic sick person dinner, prepping ahead of time seems advisable.
Homemade noodle may seem daunting, but they are actually very simple. With only four ingredients, you’ll have it all mixed up in no time. A pasta press is an inexpensive tool that is probably worth the investment. It’s cheapest and easiest to store bulk grains, so if you have a way to make your own pasta, you’re covered in an emergency. Remember last year when food was flying off the shelves and some things were really hard to come by? Fear no more! It feels good not to have to rely on grocery stores.
Still, if you don’t have a pasta press, you can still make this recipe. Your noodles will most likely be thicker, but no less delicious! Just roll them out as thin as you can and cut them thin with a pizza cutter. Easy peasy!
We used canned chicked for this recipe because it’s easy to store and incorporate, but it’s definitely not required. If you have leftover chicken or want to cook chicken for this recipe, be our guest! Most of these ingredients don’t need to be exact. Throw in whatever you have and it will be just wonderful!
Happy pasta making!
