INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a large pot, boil chicken over high heat with 14 cups of water. Salt as desired. Skim any foam that rises to the surface. Once boiling, reduce to medium-low. Add carrots, celery, tomatoes and salt. Simmer until vegetables are just cooked through, about 30 minutes. Add spinach and beans. Simmer on low for 10 more minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, cook pasta in a pot of salted, boiling water, until just tender—5 to 7 minutes. Drain, rinse and set aside.
  3. Using a slotted spoon, transfer chicken to a large bowl. Set aside to cool. Strain broth with a cheesecloth-lined colander into a clean medium-sized pot. Shred chicken, discarding skin and bones. Set aside with all remaining vegetables.
  4. Bring strained broth to a boil over high heat. Add shredded chicken, vegetables and cooked pasta. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with grated Parmesan.
