We warmed up with some of South County's best bowls of mom's favorite remedy for the winter blues
Vetrano's This was our favorite soup of the afternoon. Filled with a good amount of authentic long, al dente pasta, this perfectly fit the bill of chicken “noodle.” There were bits of chunky tomato and fresh, aromatic rosemary in the broth, which really livened up the flavor and the color. This is a soup you’ve got to try.
Guytanno's This chicken orzo rendition was well received by the staffers. With a lovely variety of vegetables like zucchini and celery, the tender bits added a nice texture to the soup. The chicken tasted fresh-roasted from the oven, and fresh herbs were abundant as well.
Pasta Patch There was lots of leafy green goodness in this chicken escarole soup. With a nice batch of ditalini pasta to add some substance, this hearty soup is good for those with a large appetite. Pasta Patch knows how to both fill and warm the bellies of those setting out for a long day outdoors. 183 Old Forge Road, East Greenwich. 884-1234
Sonoma Pub A nice thick broth was our favorite part of this soup. The little pearl pasta added some nice heft without taking away from the classic chicken flavor. It also made for a fun bit of texture on our tongues. With lots of carrots and celery, the sweetness of the veggies was a nice addition to this bowl.
