Marjoram and thyme come through nicely in this old-fashioned soup that tastes just like Grandma used to make. You can modify the recipe to include vegetables your family enjoys. My kids love carrots, so I always toss in extra. —Coleen Martin, Brookfield, Wisconsin

"Quick and easy to make. Used whole grain noodles but they seemed to disappear into the soup. Will try a different pasta such as Penne next time."

"Agree with several other reviewers that this is a bit salty. Otherwise, delicious, and very comforting on a cold day"

"The best recipe for chicken noodle soup I have ever used. The only thing I do different is leave out the salt. There is enough seasoning with all the other herbs that we never notice the missing salt! I also make it in double and triple batches and freeze it for later.. I give it away and it's always well liked. Delicious."

"Next time I will omit salt and maybe add 1 - 2 cups more water. It is a bit salty. I cooked my chicken with some garlic as well."
