This is one of those recipes that you start to make early on in the day and simmer all day, for the best flavor. Make this on a chilly day and it will warm you from head to toe. Freeze any leftovers; pull out and thaw when you get that nasty winter cold or just need a quick lunch or dinner. Even though the title states "pot pie" noodle, bow tie noodles have always been used in this soup; something I grew up with. When my mom cooks it, she will sometimes add some thin sliced diced celery and/or a peeled, whole onion to the pot, just for taste, and removes the onion prior to serving.
