One of your favorite Italian dishes turned into a delicious soup! This Cheesy Chicken Parmesan Soup is a creamy tomato-base soup filled with chicken, penne pasta, and of course cheese. The best part - it comes together in less than 30 minutes!
1lbboneless skinless chicken breastscut into 1 inch chunks
1 1/2cupshredded parmesan
salt and pepper to taste
fresh parsley for garnish
Warm oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add garlic and cook until fragrant. Stir in tomato paste, crushed red pepper flakes, Italian seasoning, and basil. Add diced tomatoes and chicken broth, bring to a simmer. Add chicken and cook until cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Our chicken was already cooked, so we only let it simmer for 5 minutes.
Add dry pasta and cook until al dente, about 10 minutes.
Just before serving, mix in both cheeses until just melted. Season with salt and pepper. Top with parsley for effect. Enjoy!!
