Chicken/Turkey Noodle Soup

to your liking Chicken or Turky cut into cubes (gotta love left overs from THANKSGIVING)
2 large carrots, peeled and chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
2 TBSP olive oil
1/2 c dried pasta (Stelline, which is now my favorite for soup, it’s just itty bitty)
2 1/2 c water, to cook pasta in, you may need more if you have bigger noodles
2-4 cups chicken broth, more to make more soup (liquid), less if you like soup with more stuff in it
1/4 tsp salt
dash of pepper
Roux if needed

Over medium high heat cook water in medium/small pot. Bring to boil then add pasta. Reduce to medium low heat, stir occasionally so pasta doesn’t stick to bottom of pan. Cook as directed on box, usually about 7-10 minutes. Drain. Set pasta aside.

Meanwhile, in large saucepan heat oil. Add carrots. Cook for 3 minutes then add celery. Cook until veggies are tender.

In a large pot pour in chicken broth, salt and pepper and meat. Cook over medium heat. If you feel like the soup is too runny add Roux Mixture. Add veggies and pasta. Heat throughly. Serve warm.
