Joe’s Soup-er Bowl recipes

The Big Game



Creamy Chicken Noodle: 4 cans of chicken broth
2 large cans of cream of chicken soup
1 small can of cream of celery soup
Carrots (as many as you like – I use almost the whole bag – cut up to your liking)
Chicken (I use Kroger frozen diced chicken – add as much as you like)
Egg noodles (as much as you like)
Salt & pepper to taste

Combine broth, soups, carrots and chicken in stock pan. Cook for a couple of hours until carrots are tender. Add egg noodles and let it cook for about another hour. The egg noodles will cause the soup to thicken up as they cook. The more you add the thicker it gets.

  • -1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan
  • Soup:
  • -1/4 cup olive oil

For garlic bread croutons, preheat oven to 425. Toss cubed bread with parmesan cheese and place on baking sheet. Bake 7 to 8 minutes until golden crisp. Set aside. 

For the soup: In a large pot over medium heat, add olive oil and jarred pesto. Cook the pesto for a couple of minutes to allow the flavors to come out. Add tomato soup, diced tomatoes, parmesan, sherry, dried parsley, and about 1/2 the amount of water listed on the soup can instructions. Season with salt & pepper. Bring to a simmer and simmer until heated through. Stir in cream.
