Want to warm up your lunch crowd on a nippy day? Pull together a batch of this steaming chicken soup in just minutes.
Scrub the carrots with a vegetable brush, then cut them into 1/4-inch slices. Use an aspic cutter to cut star shapes out of the carrot slices, and set them aside.
In a midsize pot, bring the broth to a simmer over medium heat. Stir in the sage and carrot stars and simmer for about 10 minutes more or until the carrots are tender. Add the pasta and chicken. Continue cooking the soup for another few minutes, stirring occasionally, just until the pasta is done. Makes 4 servings.
