Dire Illness Chicken Soup

Standing at the stove in a stuffy haze, really want some chicken soup. No idea what should go in as I always just open a can of Campbell's (which I don't have on the shelf). So here goes.

3 cups chicken stock from the store
1 small carrot, grated
2 tbsp yellow onion, grated
1/2 cup or so of soup noodles (These are thin and short, about an inch and a half long and work perfectly. Can't remember what they are called but I generally find them in the Mexican section of my grocery store. I'll update this when I buy another pack)
salt and pepper
1/2 tsp or so celery seed
1/2 tsp or so basil

Bring to a boil and cook for a while.
Eat hot.

Wow. It was incredible. Of course I was sick and dying for chicken noodle soup so my judgement may have been tainted, but I'm going to run with it.
