Chicken Parm Soup


  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tbsp. Italian seasoning, plus more for topping
  • 2 (14-oz.) can diced tomatoes
  • 4 c. low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 c. ditalini, mini penne, or other small pasta
  • 3 c. chopped or shredded rotisserie chicken
  • Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 3 oz. mozzarella cheese, shredded or thinly sliced
  • Chopped fresh basil and red pepper flakes, for serving (optional)


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, bay leaf, and Italian seasoning and cook, stirring, until the onion is softened, 4 to 5 minutes.
  2. Add the diced tomatoes, chicken broth, and 2 cups of water to the pot. Increase the heat to high and bring to a boil. Add the pasta, return to a boil, and cook until the soup is slightly thickened and the pasta is al dente, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the chicken. Discard the bay leaf. Season with salt and pepper.
