Way too much time on my hands!

Chicken Noodle Soup Made with "Dreamfields"

I do this all the time and just realized that others might not have thought of it.

I'll make home made chicken noodle soup (great when you have a cold or the flu) and I will make it with dreamfields spagetti noodles.

All it is, is Chicken Stock (yes you can use bullion)
Chicken chunks
Some Celery slices

Take the dry spagetti noodles and break them up to the right size and put them in the pot of boiling stock (with the chicken and celery). As soon as the noodles are done cooking, it's done. I also add a little dried parsley to it.

It's that simple.

Sometimes we get used to doing things a certain way and don't realize that we can do it a different way.


You could make Mexican wedding soup this way, just break the dreamsfield pasta into smaller pieces.

I made soup with Dreamsfield all winter but I used the rotini and added lots of veggies so I guess mine was more of chicken vegetable with pasta. I froze mine for quick meals on a cold night but did find that the pasta sometimes gets too soft when reheated (after being frozen) so if that matters you could do the pasta separate and add right before serving. Made really good ham soup this way too.

I make my standard chicken noodle soup recipe and use Dreamfield's also... It occurred to me last winter and it is so good. It's great not to have to go without noodles in soup.

Do this all the time. I thought it was a no brainer.

I'm making a chicken soup right now. I want to add Dreamfields rotini or broken up pieces of spaghetti. I'm making this in a crock pot and my question is can I add the uncooked pasta to the crock pot or should I cook it first? If I add to the pot uncooked, how soon before serving would you say 30 mins. to an hour? The soup wouldn't be boiling to cook the pasta just a "slow cook" so it would probably take awhile I'd think.

Why would you do chicken soup in a crockpot when you can cook it a lot faster on the stovetop? Seems like it would take the noodles forever to cook and the crock never really gets to the boiling temp you would need for the noodles to cook.

Well Bar10der - I just like to throw stuff in a crock pot and forget about it till dinnertime. That being said, I ended up just cooking a bit of the pasta, not fully cooked, but softening, and threw it in the pot to simmer till we're ready to eat. I agree with you, I don't think the broth would be hot enough to cook the pasta.

Hey Tweaker, it's good to know that these things can work in a slow cooker also by pre-cooking just a bit. Thanks for you experiment.

Thanks for posting this. I never thought of using Dreamfields for soup. I just made soup with chicken, celery, a can of mushrooms, a can of water chestnuts, broth and Dreamfields and it is so good.
