Chicken Soup For The Soul Owl

1 whole cut up chicken
6 medium carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
I large can of diced tomatoes
I medium onion, peeled and cut into chunks
4-6 cloves of garlic
4 sprigs of rosemary, stripped and finely chopped
2 cartons of chicken broth
½ pound of whole wheat elbow macaroni
3 medium zucchini, chopped into chunks
Parmesan cheese for sprinkling

Place chicken pieces of chicken in a large crockpot.  I use a whole cut up chicken because you can get them super cheap, plus you get both white and dark meat and that makes the soup double tasty. Pour canned tomatoes (juice and all) over the top and add carrots, onions, garlic, and rosemary to the crockpot.  Pour as much broth from the two cartons as will fit to fill the crockpot and set the rest aside.
Set Crockpot on high and walk away for 6-8 hours, or as long as you are at work or whatever.
Now the only hard part – you have to fish the cooked chicken out of the pot and remove the bones and skin.  It really isn’t that hard, but it is the hardest part of the whole dinner. As you are removing the bones, shred the chicken.  Place it back in the crock pot. Discard the bones and skin unless you need them for a voodoo ritual or something.
Add zucchini and macaroni to the pot and let it simmer until noodles are cooked through.
Sprinkle with parm and serve with  crusty French bread from the grocery store bakery.
