Simple Gluten-Free Chicken Noodle Soup + Recipe

Fall is the time of year for soups and stews!  Kenneth and I made a really simple gluten-free chicken noodle soup this afternoon and paired it with some gluten-free crackers and ginger ale for dinner.  A perfect meal if you're feeling under the weather, or if you're feeling perfectly healthy!

Simple Chicken Noodle Soup (Gluten-Free)

1 whole roasted chicken
8 ounces gluten-free pasta (we love Ancient Harvest's quinoa and corn pastas!)
Chicken broth, approximately 6 to 8 cups
Canola oil, approximately 3 tablespoons
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
3-4 handfuls of baby carrots, sliced
3-4 stalks of celery, chopped
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste

Directions: Saute onions, garlic, carrots and celery in a soup pot over medium-high heat until tender (test for tenderness by piercing a carrot with a fork).  In a separate pot, prepare gluten-free pasta according to the directions on package.  While the pasta is cooking, remove the chicken meat from the bone and shred into small pieces.  Add the cooked pasta, chicken and chicken broth to the soup pot.  Stir well, season with salt and pepper as desired.  Serve when soup is warm.
