Chicken Vegetable Soup

And here continues my saga for soup. This one is a great alternative to a chicken noodle soup. It is loaded with vegetables and low in calories. The best part it takes only 10 minutes to prepare. Added parmesan gives the broth a nutty flavor. You can swap green beans for spinach or snap peas, tomatoes for bell peppers, carrots for zucchinis or whatever vegetables you have handy. Anything goes in it!

So here is what you need for 6 plates:
