Classic chicken noodle soup gets a veggie-packed makeover with zucchini noodles (zoodles)! Make a batch for a delicious dinner, then pack leftovers in a thermos the next morning for lunch.

For best results, prep your thermos by adding boiling water to it while you heat the leftover. Then, dump out the water and add leftovers. This will help keep the soup warm until lunchtime.

Nutrition Tip: A cup of zucchini has all the vitamin C a young child needs in a day. It’s also a good source of vitamin K, which helps with proper blood clotting.

When kiddos are feeling under the weather, there’s nothing like a comforting bowl of chicken noodle soup to make them feel better.

This recipe replaces the noodles with zucchini noodles for an extra dose of Vitamin C. Plus it’s filled with Pero Family Farms® Snipped Green Beans and RealSweet® sweet onions for a satisfying veggie meal that warms and fills you up.
