Sometimes when I get a craving for soup I have time to pull out the slow-cooker, and sometimes I don't. That's where this recipe comes in handy. This Simple Chicken and Stars Soup recipe is one of our favorites because it's light, easy, and full of flavor. I usually make it with just basic chicken and star shaped pasta, but you can always add in some spinach or pre-cooked vegetables. Either way, it will guarantee you an easy, hearty soup that is perfect for lunch or dinner!
