"My favorite comfort food on a cold day. It makes your house smell amazing! It makes a huge batch, however can be 1/2ed or doubled easily depending on your groups size. You can used leftover turkey or rotisserie chicken too, great way to use up leftover meats and veggies. I serve this with my Loaded Foccacia Bread and everyone's happy! I made the seasoning amounts a little vague because you should taste the soup as you season so it works according to your tastes."

"This is delicious! I used zucchini instead of the red pepper becaust it was handy. I also used large elbows instead of the cavatappi. Great recipe that you can have fun playing with."
"Excellent flavour in this soup and easy to prepare. I loved it. I bought a new electronic chopper and tried it out on this recipe and wished I wouldn't have since it made all the veggies WAY too small so I was getting bits of veggie in every single bite. Nonetheless, you want the veggies chopped (carrots sliced) not pulverized but no matter, this was outstanding and one I will make again. I halved the recipe and it still made a ton. I cooked the pasta on the side and dropped it into each bowl since I knew I'd be freezing some and didn't want it to get starchy. Thanks for this one. I truly think the poultry seasoning made the flavor in this dish. I've never seen it put in chicken soup before. Loved it."
"This soup was pretty tasty. I couldn't add any pasta, since I was making this soup for a wheat-allergic family member. It was still very good. Thanks for the recipe."
"This soup is just delicious. I had everything on hand to make it too, which was great as I cleaned out my refrigerator a bit. I used a grocery store rotisserie chicken that I had bought for another recipe that didn't happen over the weekend. I used 'Better Than Boullion' for the chicken base. My husband and I loved this soup Bev, thanks so much for posting the recipe :)"
"This is by far the best homemade chicken soup I have ever made or had. I wouldn't change a thing."
"I made this up with leftover turkey and the extra celery, red, green and yellow peppers, carrots, and onions I had on hand after Thanksgiving! Added Mrs Dash instead of the salt. It made the house smell wonderful! And was a welcome dinner after shoveling snow!"
"This came out fabulous! Didn't need to adjust the seasonings AT ALL, which is rare when I make soup. I did use half chicken broth and half water/bouillon cubes/parsley since I couldn't find chicken base. I used about a tablespoon of salt and went with the lower amounts for the sage and poultry seasononing. I've never used these in soup before and they really made a difference. I have used cavatappi several times in soup and I like it, but my family prefers extra wide egg noodles, so that's what I used. I didn't have leftover chicken, but I made up some boneless thighs for the occasion. ;) Thanks for posting this; I will use this recipe from now on, since it was "no fail"."
