Quick Chicken Noodle Soup

Heat the broth mixture in the microwave to jump-start the cooking. While the broth mixture heats, sauté the aromatic ingredients in your soup pot to get this dish under way. Though we like the shape of fusilli, you can also make this soup with gluten-free rotini or orzo.
6 servings (serving size: about 1 cup)
