Growing up my mom would open a can of chicken and stars soup when we were home sick from school. That was her special treat when we were feeling bad. Years after that, she started making the soup from scratch. Once she found the little star pasta, it was an even bigger treat for us knowing this was homemade. I recently found my mom Ruthie’s recipe and now I’m sharing it with you. I changed things up a little. She made her own stock. I go the more convenient way and use the cartons of low sodium chicken or veggie stock. My kids love my version like I loved my mom’s.
