Chicken & Stars Soup

This recipe is super easy and tasty! Depending on the amount of liquid and pasta you add, it can be more of a soup or a pasta dish.

1 T olive oil
1 yellow onion, diced
1 C carrots, diced
1 C celery, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
8 C chicken stock (I use water + Better than Bullion)
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 tsp dried rosemary
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 C star-shaped (or alphabet!) pasta

1.) Place all ingredients (except pasta) in Crock Pot.
2.) Cook on low for 6+ hours or until chicken is tender.
3.) Shred chicken.
4.) Add stars and allow to cook on low for 30 minutes. Alternatively, you may transfer some soup into a pot, add the pasta, and boil on high for 8-10 minutes.

Serves 6.
