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.

Hello Pamela,

Eggs are used in thickening soups mostly in Asian cuisines - specifically Chinese cooking. It is indeed delicious if you add egg and chicken in a dish. Have a wonderful day!

I like the tip about using a beaten egg to thicken the soup. I hadn't heard that one before.
