Alphabet Soup

One of my twins is home sick today with a horrible cough and low grade temperature.   Being sick has not bothered his appetite in the least.  He asked for my Microwave Pancakes for breakfast.  A couple hours later and he was asking for soup.  While he was eating his soup, he asked for a milkshake.  If the adage; starve a fever, feed a cold, holds true...he's got a cold!  ~smile~

Alphabet Soup

8 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup onion, finely diced
1/2 cup celery, finely diced
1/2 cup carrots, finely diced
3-5 cloves garlic, 1 Tablespoon minced
1 to 2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, finely cut
1 to 1 1/2 cups alphabet pasta
1 teaspoon olive oil

In a heavy stockpot,  heat oil on medium.  Add onion when hot, stirring for 2 minutes.  Add celery and carrots.  Stirring for 2 minutes.  Add garlic, stirring for 1 minute.  Add chicken broth.  Simmer 10 minutes.  Add pasta, 1 1/2 cups makes a lot of pasta...you may want to use 1 cup if you want more broth.  Stir occasionally.  Simmer 6 to 8 minutes or until tripled in size.   Add rosemary last 5 minutes.   Serve with crackers or One Hour French Bread.  

Feel better sweetie! <3 and="" hugs="" nbsp="" p="">
