Simpler Times Chicken Not-So-Noodle Soup

Ok... whenever you roast a chicken, it should go without saying that the next night you make a soup! Hope you enjoy this faux chicken noodle favorite! :-)

Chicken broth
2 carrots, chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
1 yellow onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 large spaghetti squash
2 T rosemary, fresh chopped
leftover chicken pieces
1 tsp. peppercorns
1 bay leaf
pinch sea salt (optional)
freshly ground black pepper to taste

Immediately after enjoying your chicken dinner, carve carcass and reserve remaining chicken. Place carcass in a stock pot, cover with water and bring to a boil (add some peppercorns and a bay leaf). Maintain a slow boil, covered, for about 2-3 hours. Remove carcass and strain debris for a pure flavored chicken broth. Pour broth into the crock pot. Add carrots and celery. Saute garlic and onions in some olive oil. Add to crock pot. Add chicken pieces, salt and pepper. Cook on low for 4-6 hours. About 1 hour before eating, preheat oven to 350 degrees and cook spaghetti squash (pierce several holes in it first). After about 30 minutes, remove spaghetti squash and cut in half. Remove seeds (careful, it's hot). Place back in oven for about 10-15 more minutes. Carefully remove pulp from shell with spoon (or fork). Very carefully... is is HOT. Add spaghetti squash to soup. There is your faux noodles! Yum. Serve immediately and enjoy!
