Vermicelli ("little worms" in Italian) are very thin spaghetti noodles. Other pastas well suited to chicken soup include pastina, orzo, alphabet noodles and ditalini.
To stretch the soup to serve more people, add extra broth and other ingredients you might have on hand, such as diced fresh carrot, parsnip slices, canned kidney beans or black beans. Or stir in a cup or two of frozen vegetables and cook long enough to heat through.
