We take one whole chicken, boil it with salt, pepper, 3-4 garlic cloves, and crushed red pepper (very little). Once boiled, remove the chicken and leave broth in pot. Cut up the chicken (however you want) and save some for another meal. We used the meat from the thighs and legs for this soup.
Keep the broth hot (you need about 10 cups; if you don't have enough, add water). Stir in 1 onion, diced; carrots (as many as desired); celery; potatoes (diced); and more seasonings (the same as used for the broth). Cook for an hour. Add a package of rotini whole wheat pasta. Cook for another 30 minutes. Sorry that I don't have a lot of exact measurements for things. I kind of just threw it together and hard to record it :).
