If you can’t find Swiss chard, you can use 6 oz. baby spinach. Remove the stems, rinse the leaves, dry completely and then chop.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 2 carrots, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 large yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 1 celery stalk, finely chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup conchiglie or other small pasta shape
  • 2 cups shredded braised chicken
  • 1 bunch Swiss chard, ribs removed, leaves cut crosswise into thin strips
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

Directions:

Sauté the vegetables
In a large saucepan over medium heat, warm the olive oil. Add the carrots, onion and celery, season with salt and pepper, and sauté until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the broth, increase the heat to medium-high and bring to a boil.

Cook the pasta
Add the pasta and chicken to the pan and return to a boil. Cook, stirring often, until the pasta is not quite al dente (tender but firm to the bite), about 3 minutes, or according to the package instructions. Stir in the chard and cook until wilted, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper. Ladle the soup into bowls and serve immediately. Pass the cheese at the table. Serves 4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and delicious! I use precooked chicken on busy nights and it makes a fast hearty weeknight dinner. I have added cubed butternut squash for a slightly sweeter version. You can substitute Kale for Chard. Just a wonderful versatile soup.
