This pumpkin soup recipe is like no other you've tried. Pump up your chicken noodle soup by adding pumpkin, cream and cheddar cheese It takes less than 10 minutes to make for the perfect fall dinner!
When fall hits things get crazy around our house. It's school, fall sports, and the approaching holidays. Last weekend we were putting our Halloween decorations and went to pick up a few new things at Walmart including our Halloween costumes. To get us in the mood I decided to make a fun warm and hearty soup for dinner. Not wanting to spend a lot of time on dinner I decided to pump up our favorite Progresso Rich & Hearth Chicken & Homestyle Noodle Soup. I also picked up some Pillsbury Puff Pastry to make the kid's soup extra fun and festive.
Wait until you see how awesome this chicken noodle pumpkin soup recipe turned out with a jack-o-lantern face!
Progresso soups are our favorite and I know I can feel good about them because their chicken noodle soup is made with antibiotic free, all white meat chicken. It's just like homemade chicken noodle soup in a can. As a mom of school-age children, and a PTA President I also love that there are Box Tops on the can lable we can save to support our school.
Recipe for pumpkin soup with chicken and noodles
To make this pumpkin chicken soup you simply start to heat up a can of Rich and Hearty Chicken and Homestyle Noodles, add a quarter cup of pumpkin puree, some rich heavy cream, and savory cheddar cheese. It's that simple. Heat until the cheese is melted through and serve. It's so warm, rich and creamy even people that claim they don't like pumpkin will love it!
Now if you really want to have fun with your kid's dinner and get them in the mood for the holidays add a fun puff pastry pumpkin topper to a bowl of this creamy chicken noodle pumpkin soup. It takes a little longer to make if you add the crust due to thawing and rechilling the dough, but if you have the time it's really worth the small bit of effort.
Set out a box of Pillsbury Puff Pastry for approximately 40 minutes then unfold it onto a lightly floured surface. Take your bowl and cut around it leaving a 1/2 inch border.
Take a sharp knife and cut out a pumpkin face just like you do your real pumpkin at Halloween.
Brush one side of the dough with and egg wash and then pinch it around the sides of the soup bowl.
Brush the top with egg wash, place the bowls on a cookie sheet and place them in your refrigerator to chill for 30 minutes. This will help the pastry to hold up better when you cook it and don't worry when you bake it, the soup will reheat! Place in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes and you've got a fun Halloween soup your kids can't wait to eat!
