Prep Time: 40 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes
Servings: 6 people


  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • ¾ cup yellow onion (diced)
  • 3/4 cup diced carrots (diced)
  • 3/4 cup celery (diced)
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • Carcass of one 4- to 5-pound roast chicken
  • 4 cups chicken broth (32 oz )
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 cup acini de pepe pasta (uncooked (½ package) (or ditalini or orzo))
  • Kosher salt and pepper (to taste)
  • Parmesan cheese (for topping (optional) )


  • Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add onions, carrots and celery and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Saute until veggies have softened, 6-8 minutes. Add garlic and saute for an additional 30 seconds, until fragrant.
  • Add the chicken to the pot, along with the broth, water and bay leaf.
  • Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes. Skim any foam or fat from the broth with a ladle as necessary.
  • Remove the carcass with tongs and set aside to cool.
  • Add the pasta to the broth and stir to combine. Simmer for 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender. Season with additional salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Meanwhile, when the chicken is cool enough to handle, pick off the meat, and shred it into bite-size pieces.
  • When the pasta is done, add the chicken to the broth and season with additional salt and pepper, to taste. Enjoy topped with parmesan cheese, if desired.


I prefer to use acini de pepe pasta in this soup, but any pasta shape will work. You can use egg noodles, ditalini, orzo, elbow macaroni, shells, etc.
