Makes 4 to 6 servings

 

  • 1 quart chicken broth, store-bought or homemade
  • 1 cup Frontera Roasted Tomato Salsa, pureed smooth if desired
  • ½ teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 to 3 ounces angel hair pasta (or angel hair fideos), broken into 2-inch pieces
  • 2 medium-size zucchini or chayote squash (or 1 of each), cut into ½ inch pieces
  • 1 small white onion, diced
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

  1. Put chicken broth and salsa into a large saucepan. Add salt and heat to simmer over low.
