Alphabet Flax Seed Chicken Soup

I know I have already posted about a chicken soup but this is worth sharing for a few reasons: I utilized leftovers from a rotisseries chicken (yes, the same one I used in my pepitas salad), I added ground flax seed (ah-ha children) and I was thrilled to use the Nature's Promise Vegetable Stock that Stop & Shop now carries. Oh, and the kids loved this much more than that
well known kids canned soup-yuk. Go Mommy!

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 carrot, diced
1 celery, diced
1/8 teaspoon each salt & pepper
1 large cloves garlic (note: go 2 next time)
1/2 sweet onion
3 tablespoon baby spinach, finely chopped
2 cups Organic vegetable stock
4 cups water
1 cup alphabet pasta
2 teaspoons ground organic flax seeds
1.5 cups chopped cooked chicken

1. Heat oil over medium-high heat and add carrots and celery, add salt and pepper and saute for 2 minutes.
2. Add garlic and onions saute 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently
3. Add baby spinach and stir about 30 seconds
4. Turn heat to high and add stock, water, and pasta and boil or 9 minutes.
5. Add flax seed and chicken, cook 1 minute. Season to your liking with salt & pepper
6. Serve
