I have no idea how anyone could think this soup was boring! It's my go-to chicken soup recipe every time. The pesto and lemon juice at the end are the key and make this chicken soup stand apart from others. I always chop my own veggies and add more than it calls for and I usually increase the broth amount as well so there's leftovers. You could always add a bulkier pasta (i.e. elbows) if you like that texture, but I like that it cuts back on carbs using the pastina. Yummy!

This was very simple and the whole family enjoyed it. I sauteed the veggies and chicken in olive oil before adding the liquid. Will definetly make again.

B-O-R--I-N-G My son loves chicken noodle soup, and would hardly eat this. I thought the pastina was too little too be enjoyable. I'm surprised it got such good reviews.

This is a good go-to soup. I usually add more veggies than what is called for, and instead of chicken tenders, I'll just cut up some rotisserie chicken. I love serving this with crusty, warm bread! My 3.5 yr old daughter won't eat anything, and she even likes this soup! (I think it has something to do with the tiny stars...)
