How to Make Chicken and Creamed Corn Broken Pasta Soup
Soup is a stock-based meal made by boiling meat, fish, seafood, fruit, or vegetables. It is often served as an appetizer, although it could also be a main course if it is very hearty.
I enjoy eating soups—especially during cold weather. Therefore, I decided to come up with an interesting soup recipe wherein I combined the tastes of Native American cuisine and Italian cuisine. I named the dish Chicken and Creamed Corn Broken Pasta Soup.
Creamed corn has its origins in Native American cuisine. A can of creamed corn is usually made with equal amount of creamed corn and whole corn kernels.
Broken pasta refers to a pasta broken into pieces. The most common pasta used for this are the long-strand pastas, such as spaghetti, linguine, and fettuccine.
