Alastair Hendy's Chicken Dinner Pasta Soup

Affordable and highly nutritious, this soup's an all-round winner.

Method

1. In a saucepan, fry the onion, celery and garlic in the oil until softened but not coloured, 3-4 minutes. Add the stock and pasta and simmer for 8 minutes, or until the pasta is cooked.
2. Roughly chop the greens. Stir these into the soup along with the chicken, check for seasoning, and simmer for a few minutes more or until the chicken is hot and heated through and the greens just wilted.

Hints 'n' Tips

Make it special: Serve showered with freshly grated or shaved parmesan.

Variation: Add chopped root vegetables, such as carrot, swede and potato, and cook until almost tender before adding the pasta.
