Lemon Chicken Soup


  1. In a large Dutch oven, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion, celery and garlic. Season with salt and pepper and cook until tender, stirring often, about 7 minutes.
  2. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Add to the pan with the Italian seasoning and cook, stirring often until chicken is no longer pink. Add the chicken broth, ½ teaspoon salt and pepper to taste. Add the zucchini, bring to a simmer and cook for 25 minutes, stirring frequently.
  3. In a large saucepan, cook pasta according to package instructions, drain and reserve.
  4. Reduce Dutch oven heat to low, stir in pasta and spinach. Return to a simmer; reduce heat again to low. Stir in lemon zest, juice and slices. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Remove from heat.
  5. Serve with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese.            

TIP: Do not cook soup once lemon slices have been added or it may become bitter.
