While this is not an original - this is a money
What you need is a box of dry chicken soup, a bag of egg noodles, a few boullion
and if you like any type of canned vegetables can be added.
When making the dry soup, a packet is usually two cups of water, so add four
cups of water for every packet, add the package of egg noodles (can be any size
that you like), add a few chicken spices, and then the vegetables - and you have
enough for ten instead of the usual four.
This is great if you pack your lunch and want left overs, if you have unexpected
guests, or if you are just in the mood for soup.
