  1. for me, chicken noodle soup must have a good amount of garlic and the pepper must be fresh ground pepper.
    those huge noodles in canned soup are so unappetizing. I would prefer angel hair pasta or the Mexican fideos noodles. Nice and thin. And must add more black pepper to the broth and a touch of cayenne. Helps with congestion if you got a cold. And warming.
    Better Than Bouillon does make a low salt version of chicken or beef. It tastes like real broth compared to other bouillon. Good stuff to have on hand to add flavor to something.
