Lemon Basil Chicken Macaroni Soup

Lisa G. Sweet Pantry Gal


I just love chicken soup. I have to eat all year long no matter how hot it may get outside. So I added fresh herbs and lemon for a little italian fresh herb summer soup.
In honor of National macaroni day, i used what I call curley macaroni instead of egg noodles. The fresh herbs from My garden really made this recipe.
