[A good test for doneness: the wing should pull easily away from the rest of the chicken.] Remove roaster to large plate and cool. Strain chicken stock into large bowl, saving for soup. Discard vegetables. Cut meat into 1/2-inch pieces.

Add homemade chicken broth and tomatoes. Stir in zucchini and green beans. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes. Add cooked shell pasta and spinach.
