Chicken Noodle, Italian style

Want a twist on a soup classic? Substitute ravioli instead of pasta noodles. Use left over chicken if you have any and it’s that simple. This first recipe is dedicated to my son Daniel who is warm, loving and kind. And didn’t mind eating the spinach I snuck in there!


Cooked chicken (breast, leg pieces bone in)

Fresh or frozen spinach, 2 handfuls (optional)

Salt/pepper to taste

Fresh thyme

1 Tbsp garlic, minced

Baby potatoes, halved (3 or 4 approx)

Chicken broth, 3 cartons

Fresh ravioli/ 1 pkg frozen

In a large pot, combine cooked chicken (remove skin), potatoes, spinach, spices, broth and cook until potatoes are almost tender. Add ravioli directly into broth mixture and cook until al dente. Perfect meal to make if you have chicken roast left overs.

Serves 4 – Mangia!
