1 carrot, diced

2 teaspoons olive oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

teaspoon salt

teaspoon dried basil

teaspoon dried oregano

teaspoon dried rosemary

teaspoon black pepper

1 tablespoon tomato paste

6 cups (48 ounces) chicken stock (or canned lower-sodium chicken broth)

1 cup bow-tie pasta

1 pound cooked chicken, cubed

2 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley, minced

Salt and pepper to taste

Fresh parsley, chopped for garnish

Saute the onions, celery and carrot in the olive oil in a large stockpot set over medium heat until translucent, about 8 minutes. Add the garlic, salt, basil, oregano, rosemary, pepper and tomato paste, and cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.

Add the stock (broth) to the pot and bring to a boil. Add the pasta and cook according to the package instructions until al dente, about 8 minutes. When the pasta is done, stir in the chicken and parsley, and warm through, about 5 minutes longer. Taste and adjust seasonings as necessary with salt and pepper. Garnish with fresh parsley.

Serves four to six.
