There are certain recipes I like to have handy in case we have unexpected company or I just need to pull something together quickly for dinner. This Emergency Soup recipe is just that kind of recipe. It’s delicious enough for company, makes a perfect soup to give a neighbor who’s under the weather or a new mom. Or if you just want a simple supper for yourself look no further. Serve with a salad and a loaf of bread and you’re all set. I’m sure you even have all the ingredients on hand to make this soup in no time.

Emergency Soup


4 cups chicken broth (preferably homemade)
1 carrot, chopped
1 rib of celery, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1 cup of small shell pasta (you could use another pasta if you don’t have small shell pasta)
Salt and pepper to taste
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Put the broth in a pot and bring to a boil. Add the carrot, celery, and onion and boil gently for ten minutes, then add the pasta and simmer for 5 minutes. When the pasta is done, the soup is done. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve in bowls with some grated Parmesan cheese.

Serve this soup with a simple salad and a loaf of bread and dinner is served.

This sounds perfect given all the cold weather we’ve been having! I love that it uses simple ingredients that I almost always have on hand.

I do something similar but make it with dehydrated vegetables. Looks good.

Looks great! I’m almost out of my home canned chicken broth…but I will need to use a jar for this soup soon!
