Made exactly as directed. I thought it was way too salty to eat more than one bowl of it. I took out all the chicken, rinsed off the broth & gave it to the cat. I'm giving the recipe 4 stars due to ease of preparation and if your one that likes salty food I guess this would be pretty good.

Great soup mix and so easy! I gave this to my sick mom (who caught the flu from my kids--sorry mom!). She said with her sore throat, it tasted really good and went down really well. I didn't have the barley or spinach pasta, so added a little more rice and shell macaroni instead. Very comforting recipe! Thanks for posting this!
