Use-it-up Chicken Noodle Soup

The girls and I all are home sick today.  They've had fevers all weekend and I started getting a sore throat last night.  I decided to make some home made chicken noodle soup using up things that I had on hand.

1 medium onion, diced - $.20
1 tbsp minced garlic - $.05
1 tbsp. Chicken Seasoning - $.05
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp onion powder - $.05
1 tbsp oregano - $.05
1 tbsp parsley flakes - $.05
about 1/2 tbsp - 1 tbsp garlic sea salt (used up what was left in the grinder) - $.10
1/2 of a really large chicken breast cut up - $1.12
6 cups of home made chicken stock from the freezer - free
1 tbsp olive oil - $.12
1 can corn - $.49
1/2 box of cavatappi pasta - $.44
About 1/2 cup of leftover brown rice - $.15

Add olive oil and onion to pan and saute.  Then add all of the ingredients except the pasta and cook until boiling.  Add pasta and heat until pasta is tender.

Total Cost - $2.87 for a large pot of Chicken Noodle Soup

It came out really good.  It's nice and thick the way Mr. R likes it so hopefully he'll eat it too since it made so much.  

The girls haven't tried it yet.  Hopefully they will like it too.

The noodles have absorbed a lot of the chicken stock so I might need to add a little more before serving it next time.
