Heat oil in a large heavy soup pot over high heat. Add chicken meat and bones, salt, and 10 turns of pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until meat and bones are brown, about 5 minutes.
Add onions, celery, carrots, green onions, garlic, parsley, basil, bay leaves and Creole seasoning and cook, stirring once or twice, about 4 minutes. Add chopped vegetables, spinach and crushed red pepper and cook 1 minute more. Add the stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer, uncovered, about 25 minutes. Remove carcass and loose bones. Add noodles, bring back to a boil, and simmer 5 minutes. Refrigerate overnight, if possible. It'll taste even better if you do. Serve 1 1/3 cups per bowl and freeze any extra servings.
