 Ingredients List

  • 1 tb Olive oil
  • 1 Onion; chopped
  • 4 c Garlic; minced
  • 4 Celery stalk; chopped fine
  • 2 Carrot; minced
  • 1 Red bell pepper; chopped
  • 8 c Fat-free chicken broth
  • 2 c Shell pasta; (small)
  • 2 c Cooked chicken; cubed
  • 2 tb Fresh lemon juice
  • 2 ts Lemon peel; grated
  • 6 c Fresh spinach; stems removed
  • Salt and pepper; to taste


1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, cook 1
minute. Add celery. carrots, pepper and saute until tender, about 8
minutes. Add broth and bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer and cook about 20
2. Meanwhile cook pasta in large pot of boiling water, drain. (Note: I
cook pasta in water rather than broth so the pasta won't soak up all my
homemade broth,. If you want, add pasta to broth after 20 minutes, cook 10
minutes and go to step 3. You will probably need to add more broth or water
to soup.)
3. Mix in pasta, chicken, lemon juice, peel and spinach. Cook until
spinach just wilts. Season with salt and pepper.
