I was looking for a recipe for noodles. I still make my own soup recipe, but now I use this recipe for noodles. These noodles are easy to make and add much more to a soup than the packaged noodles. Thanks.

This soup is amazing and not very difficult to make. Homemade noodles take it over the top!

I have made this soup countless times over the past 5+ years. It's my favorite chicken soup. I usually forego the homemade noodles (mine never turn out right) and instead use 3 cups of cooked brown rice (healthier too!). Or you can use cooked elbow macaroni. Any way you make it, it is so delicious and easy to prepare.

I tried this because I had never thought of using clove in chicken soup. Loved the flavor.noodles were unsuccessful. Dough was dry and hard to roll and noodles cooked up tough. This is only my second attempt at hand made noodles though.

I make gallons of this soup in the cold months. It freezes really well. It's a great way to use leftover Thanksgiving turkey meat an bones as well.

This is a really good recipe. I found it to be a little on the salty side and would either leave the salt out or use salt free bouillon next time.
