Jennifer's Spicy Chicken Vegetable Pasta Soup

This is great when you're getting over having a cold -- or at other times, too. If you don't like it too spicy, reduce the amount of cayenne pepper. The salsa is definitely optional. You can alter the recipe a great deal just by changing the vegetable combination. I cook the chicken in the microwave because it's quick and easy. I use canned chicken broth and chop the vegetables fresh, though you could buy the veggies frozen. I buy jars of minced garlic to have on hand for other cooking. Makes a good-sized potful.

Quite good-- I added green beans and more seasonings. I think the salsa is a great idea.

This was really well liked by the family. DH & DS aren't usually "soup" kinda guys, but neither could deny the simple, yet delicious combination of ingredients. I used a smidge less cayenne but next time will use the full amount. Thanks for a great tasting & easy soup recipe, Ladydaungerous! Made, enjoyed & reviewed for Pick-A-Chef Spring 2008.
