Home Cooking/chicken noodle soup


Nice to meet you Jane
First, I want to make a chicken noodle soup. I dont have noodles. Will macaroni do just as well?
 Also is celery a MUST? I dont have any but I have the carrots.

Hi Joyce,

Any noodle shape will work for Chicken Soup. As for the celery, you can pass on it but your soup may taste like something is missing. Maybe add a little Celery salt if you have it on hand. Other veggies like carrots and onions are great as well.

First of all, I LOVE to cook. I raised four kids and worked so quick and easy was very important. I can answer most any food/recipe question. Home style cooking is my favorite forum, but I also am knowledgable in sauces and some saute. Questions about food storage, food safety, quick and easy meals, cook ahead meals for freezing and hostess ideas are welcome here.
