What are your favorites?
Rice or pasta?
What do you NOT like in your chicken soup?
Rice.... with Cream of Chicken
I actually don't like rice or pasta in my chicken soup. Like it with just the veggies and chicken. Of course I was the only one in the family that didn't like it, so I made the fine soup noodles for the rest. Had to be those very fine noodles because that's what hubby liked.
I like pasta in it, the tiny acini de pepe. I also add parm cheese to my bowl. I add the usual onion/carrot/celery but sometimes add spinach or other greens.
It's been a long time, but I would sometimes make tiny meatballs for the soup and add escarole for Italian Wedding soup.
I made the acini de pepe for my daughter when she was a little girl. She loved that.
Italian wedding soup is also a favorite in my family.
I'm not fond of cooked celery but added it for flavor. In Hungary you couldn't even find the celery stalk, only the root. It has a slightly different flavor. I grew to like it better.
I always add parsnips to my soup too, not many, just a few.
Pasta. I absolutely would not like peas in my chicken soup.
I'll agree about peas, Babs.
Well..I wouldn't want peas in there..I like celery, spinach, corn, zucchini..but not peas.. I don't want oatmeal in there either.lol..go figure
That's funny..I didn't even read your post before I said peas..GMTA..lol
I want a bowl of that wedding soup now, looks so good. Maybe when I move in with my daughter one day, I'll get back to cooking. They'll love me even more than they do now...if that's possible.
Yes they do...and there are a lot of great minds on this Forum.
Pasta in my soup,!
My mother always made her chicken soup with the carrots sliced in wide circles. I chop mine into chunks. She always used flat egg noodles.
I like all shapes..but lately I try to make it something like those tiny shells and such in the little bags..I like it to fit on the spoon..also I use a large mug for my soup..my favorite way to eat it.
This is what mine looked like but had parsnips sliced and celery and some chicken breast chunks. I also did matzo balls sometimes. My hubby liked liver dumplings too...wasn't crazy about making those.
