Fresh, brightly colored vegetables add some welcome vibrancy to this comforting soup. Have fun with the noodle shape, or use any small pasta you have on hand. If you'd like, sprinkle each serving with freshly ground black pepper for a finishing touch.

This quirky twist on the classic recipe is a perfect combination of the hearty vegetable minestrone soups of your childhood and comforting chicken noodle soup. We love the alphabet shape noodles, which encourage pint-sized palates to enjoy their dinner. Pair this soup recipe with a garlic bread for the best of cool weather flavor.
