Chicken Soup With

Homemade Noodles

From early childhood you can remember your parents offering chicken soup to fend off that first cold air of the fall. A savory broth, rich with vegetables and lots of diced chicken, conjures up all of the fond memories of youth. (Yeah, you can make a great soup with store-bought noodles but you owe it to yourself to make at least one batch of homemade noodles in your lifetime.)
