Creamy Basil Parmesan Italian Soup tastes better than any restaurant at a fraction of the cost! Super easy, seasoned to perfection bursting with tender chicken, tomatoes, carrots, celery and macaroni enveloped by creamy Parmesan.
I finally came to the realization that its not cooling down here in Carlsbad (north San Diego) any time soon, so if I ever wanted to eat soup this Fall, I was going to have to slurp it with my air conditioning on full blast.
I am so sorry for me and for you that I waited this long because this Creamy Basil Parmesan Italian Soup is one of my favorite soups ever.
I was inspired by the ingredients and flavor profile of my Tomato Basil Parmesan Soup which is pureed and mega creamy and to-live-for (another must try). In this version, my Creamy Basil Parmesan Italian Soup is still creamy but with a wonderfully hearty texture – and its only two pots – and one of those is for the pasta!
This beloved soup is swimming with moist chicken, sauteed onions, carrots, celery, bell peppers and small macaroni seasoned with bay leaves, garlic, parsley, oregano, cumin and of course plenty of fresh basil.
The soup is delish left alone in this seasoned broth, but for over-the-top deliciousness – as in better than any restaurant – stir in Parmesan cheese and either heavy cream or half/half, and you won’t be able to stop after two bowls – you won’t even be tempted.
