It’s the first full week of January! And it is probably the hardest week of the year. Lol. From Thanksgiving weekend to New Year’s Day, there was always something to look forward to. And now that we’ve hit January, it feels as if suddenly the days have slowed down.

This chicken noodle soup is filled with pappardelle noodles, shredded chicken, carrots, celery, and onion. The flavors of fresh thyme add depth to the soup. Salt and pepper lightly season the chicken noodle soup. It’s perfect for a weeknight meal. Leftovers can be packed for lunch too.

In a medium pot, cook about 4 ounces of pappardelle noodles according to the direction on the package. Drain the pasta noodles and run them through cold water to prevent them from continuing to cook and from sticking to each other. Set the pappardelle noodles aside for now.

In a medium sized pot, add about 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Allow the olive oil to heat for about a minute. Once the olive oil is heated, add chopped onions, diced celery, diced carrots, and minced garlic. Cook for several minutes until the vegetables are tender.

    Yum! We had just a dusting of snow overnight in Toronto and temps are dropping. Soup is perfect comfort food. We have some chestnuts in the pantry and tonight I’m going to try to figure out a tasty chestnut soup.
