Bring 4 quarts of water to a boil in a large stockpot and empty the contents of the jar containing the Make Ahead Noodle Soup Mix into the boiling water.
Return the water to a boil, turn the heat down to a medium simmer, and allow the soup to simmer for 10 minutes.
If adding raw vegetables, add them to the soup pot at the same time you add the soup mix.
If using cooked meats or cooked vegetables, add them to the stockpot for the last two minutes of cooking time to allow them to warm through.
You can store leftovers in the refrigerator, sealed well, for 2-3 days, and then rewarm in a saucepan on the stovetop.
