Chicken Pasta Stew Recipe

chicken pasta stew recipeNot much is more comforting on a chilly fall evening than a big bowl of chicken soup.  It’s not just the warmth and flavors that feel good.  It’s also gentle on upset tummies.

Bud came down with a sinus infection the other day a few days after he got food poisoning.  Antibiotics tend to be problematic on sensitive stomachs, so the doctor put Bud on a bland diet for the next couple of weeks.  Of course, chicken was the first thing we thought of.  Willow had this amazing recipe for chicken pasta stew.  It’s hearty but still soothing and feeds a large family for one night or one sickly teenager for a few days.
