Chicken Vegetable Soup with Pasta

Another weekend, another soup! I’m really loving on this cooler weather and it shows with all the soup I’ve been cooking recently. And of course, today’s is no exception! It’s a slightly upgraded version of chicken noodle soup and it’s so delicious!

Typical chicken noodle soup uses a yellow or white onion but leeks give it a sweeter oniony flavor that I just adore! Using cooked leftover pasta also is an easy way to get this soup on the table faster and use up extras laying around the house. It’s a real win-win!
