Good ole Chicken Noodle Soup

What is a good pasta to use for Chicken Noodle Soup? I don't want something that's going to absorb the broth and get puffy and icky. I want something to maintain it's original cooked texture...something that will keep for a day or two without having to add more broth...is that even possible?

When I make chicken soup, I cook the noodles by themselves, then add them as I serve the soup. If I want the soup a second time i just make more.
I use flat egg noodles.

I use egg noodles or broken spaghetti noodles. No Yolks work well also.

+1. Any noodles will swell, there are some that are some what better than others, but still they will all get big. So i too cook them separate and serve it right into ball. some times if I do cook noodles in the soup I buy the smallest, the thinest noodles available, but even the get pretty big.

That's what I have started doing, because sometimes we have a lot of soup leftover. I like keeping the noodles separate, so I can freeze the soup if I don't plan on having it the next day.

I love chicken soup and rice. As the matter of fact i would say this is my all around, all time favorite food, breakfast, lunch or diner, eh, even a midnight snack. I should make some, when I get home.

I guess I'm in the minority. I cook the noodles in the soup because I want them to taste like the soup, not water. I go with smaller noodles so they are manageable on the spoon.

If the soup is too thick because the noodles have soaked up more liquid, I just add a little more broth. I always have chicken and beef broths/stocks either in the freezer or the pantry.
