Well here you go. One of my family's favorite recipe's. It goes back 2 generations. My husband's grandmother's recipe.
This is a great recipe to get the kiddo's to eat their vegetables, and they won't even know it!
Grandmom's Ball soup
1 bag carrots
1 bag celery w/leaves
1 can tomato paste
1 box Anci de Pepe pasta
1 sm chicken
Fill 12qt pot (dutch oven) with water about 3/4 full
add celery w/leaves
add 1 sm can tomato paste
bring to boil, then add chicken
I usually simmer for about 4 hours.
remove chicken to plate to cool
remove vegetables to blender and puree
add puree back to broth and bring to boil
add Anci de pepe (pasta) cook according to directions.
take chicken apart and cut up to add to soup.
When soup is done, add some Parmesan cheese or a little mozzarella cheese
