My husband purchased an electric pressure cooker for me a couple months ago and its my favorite appliance EVER! He got me the Pressure Cooker XL (you could also use an Instant Pot instead) and this thing has changed my life! I am all about food prepping, freezer meals and meal planning to make life easier but pressure cooking takes it to another level. This pressure cooker definitely saves time, money and will cook your food in half the time. Seriously y’all, this little appliance is worth every penny. I have made steel cut oats, pastas, soups, roasts, baked sweet and russet potatoes, bone broth, I could go on and on. The disappointing part is among all of my excitement I forgot to take pictures of all these delicious meals except for the chicken noodle soup. I will have to make them again so I can post the recipes! Thankfully, this is the time of year for good soups to warm you up and fight off any yucky colds!
This chicken noodle soup is full of flavor and my favorite part is the Reames frozen noodles. These noodles taste like homemade and all you do is just dump them into your pot. Easy peasy!
Pressure Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup
4 tablespoons butter
2 cups chopped carrots
2 cups chopped celery
1 medium onion finely chopped
2 teaspoons chopped garlic

1 parmesan cheese rind*
2 bay leaves
4 fresh thyme stems
1 fresh sprig rosemary
1 (24 oz.) package of Reames frozen egg noodles
more salt and pepper to taste
*I always save my parmesan cheese rinds and store in a freezer bag in the freezer. I throw it in my soups and alfredo sauce to add extra flavor. If you do not have a rind just skip that ingredient.*
