Chicken noodle soup is one of those classic soups that every one loves. Well, today I have a variation on that beloved classic soup. This is a Sicilian chicken noodle soup.
This has the classic broth, chicken, carrots, celery, onion, and noodles that you expect in a chicken noodle soup. However, the noodles used in this are ditalini noodles. Ditalini means “little thimbles” in Italian and is shaped like small tubes.
There are 3 ingredients in this soup that are different from the classic soup. There is diced potatoes, canned tomatoes, and red bell pepper. For me, the red bell pepper is really what changes up the flavor of this soup.
This Sicilian soup cooks in the slow cooker. However, the you pasta is cook separately before adding it in at the end. This prevents the pasta from absorbing the broth and you can also cook it to the perfect al dente texture.
