"A combination of several recipes I've made over the years to make this warm, comforting soup. Great for warm days, sick days, or just any day. I sometimes serve this with mashed potatoes as well! The more flour on the pasta from rolling it out, the thicker your soup will be." — shasty

It was great. My wife was not feeling well and I made this for her. The leeks and ginger help clear her up. I put rosemary in the soup and added salt not that much just a pinch. Will make this on a cold winters day.
Great flavor and good for you too! Love the leeks in this.
Fantastic! I made the recipe as is, but next time will use a pasta maker so the noodles will be thinner. Next time, I'll add more salt too. Also, I'll try adding rosemary, which another reviewer reommended. My 13-year old daughter ate 3 bowls of this! Thank you for the recipe!!!
No doubt about it, this was delicious. I did have to make substitutions, but I don't think it strayed from the integrity of the recipe. I didn't have bone-in chicken to make a quick stock, but I did have enough frozen turkey stock and two boneless chicken breasts to use in its place so I just added everything in steps 1-3 to my stock and let her simmer. I don't think it would be all that different if you started from scratch with some canned stock, or even bouillon cubes because we devoured the soup on day one, and overnight, the noodles soaked up all of the soup broth. For day two, I made some chicken bouillon broth and added it to the leftovers; it was still delicious nonetheless! I didn't have any leek, so I substituted yellow onion. It may not have been fancy, but is sufficed sure enough. The addition of ginger had me skeptical, but it added a distinct but subtle flair that I cannot recommend more. Stick it in there! Lastly, the homemade noodles were incomparable. They really added the homemade touch and I would certainly take the time again especially if my intent was for a comforting meal or I was cooking for friends. Well done Shasty!
All I can say is WOW! Like other reviewers, I was a bit hesitant about the ginger. It really makes this soup pop. I cheated on the noodles. I used Reamer's frozen egg noodles. Everyone in my house is sick, including me, so it was one less step. I'm SURE that the home made noodles are even more fantastic in this soup!
I used a whole chicken and placed everything in crock pot added 2 bay leaves and some fresh parsley once chicken was cooked I took ginger and shredded chicken and placed back into crockpot I left celery and carrots in pot.
Made noodles and used my kitchen aid mixer to cut flat noodles and placed in baggy in refer until dinner time.
I didn't feel it was necessary to thicken with cornstartch because the flour from homemade noodles seemed to do the job.
Great for a rainy day!
I was worried about adding ginger but it was amazing and helped the family recover from the flu.
