  • 3 cups boiled and drained whole-wheat blend pasta (like Barilla Plus penne pasta)
  • 8 cups low-sodium chicken broth (canned or reconstituted from packets)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon fresh chopped fresh herb blend (such as parsley, sage and oregano)


  1. Add olive oil to large nonstick sauce pan and heat over medium-high heat. Add celery, mushrooms and onion and saute until vegetables are lightly browned (about 5 minutes).
  2. Stir in shredded chicken, garlic, and black pepper, and toss to blend well.
  3. Add the pasta, chicken broth, and fresh herbs and bring to a gentle boil. Reduce heat to simmer, cover pot and let simmer about 10-15 minutes.
