You guys, this soup is SO GOOD! Seriously. The ingredient list is unassuming, but trust me, something magical happens when everything comes together. It’s like chicken noodle soup but kicked up a notch. The fresh greens add a nice bright flavor (and color!). I used a mixture of spinach, kale, and mustard greens but you can use whatever you have on hand. It could even be gluten-free if you used gluten-free pasta! This dinner is so easy, high in protein, low in calories, and 100% delicious! Leftovers are great too…but you probably won’t have any ;). Give it a try and let me know what you think! Enjoy!
