2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil + another splash
1 medium onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 zucchini, cute into 1/2 inch cubes
2 medium carrots, cut into thin rounds
2 celery ribs, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
2 quarts low sodium chicken broth
1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tbsp dried thyme or leaves from 4 fresh thyme sprigs

Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, cook for a few minutes until fragrant and translucent. Add another splash of olive oil, the zucchini, carrots and celery. Cook for another 5 minutes, stirring throughout. Once the veggies have softened a bit stir in the broth, lemon juice and thyme. Raise the heat to medium high and bring to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until it’s soft. Add the chicken (*see notes) and continue to cook until it’s warmed through. Season with salt & pepper to taste. Sprinkle with the parsley before serving.
When shredding the roasted chicken allow some of the skin into the mix, this will add so much extra flavor to your soup!
