If you haven't tried chicken noodle soup over mashed potatoes, I am sorry! You will never go back. It makes a creamy, delicious meal. I always make my Homemade Egg Noodles they really make a difference in the soup, 1 1/2 this recipe as you need more noodles. I also use Mashed Potato Virgin! for the potatoes, cut back a bit on the butter and milk when using in soup because all the liquid already gives it great flavor. Enjoy!

This was a wonderful meal! I think this is my husbands new favorite. It was great leftover too! The homemade noodles suggested are well worth the effort(they aren't hard to do at all). This is a definite keeper!
