A quick dinner made from six everyday kitchen staples, carbonara is a comfort food standby in Italian kitchens for good reason.

Easy to prepare and nourishing, this straightforward, family-friendly soup recipe uses boneless chicken thighs and white rice. Ready in just an hour, it doesn't need to simmer all day for a full flavor that gets a little extra panache when topped with sharp, grated cheese.
