Saute onion, carrot, celery, garlic. in canola oil until translucent. Add broth, cook a little, add noodles and canned chicken (you could also get a pre-cooked chicken from the deli and shred... yum). These noodles take 15-16 minutes to cook, so the vegetables should be tender by the time they are done. I added a bit of saffron, thyme, oregano, and a bay leaf, too.
