For a simple recipe this soup had good flavor. To keep the noodles from getting too mushy I cooked them as directed but then didn't add them to the soup until the very end, just to warm them up.-16 Nov 2006

by Kara

I followed the recipe exactly as written except I halved it. It made a big enough pot for 4 people to have seconds, with just a little left over. I used campbell's broth with garlic and herbs, and also added the cooked noodles at the end, to prevent them from getting mushy! This was easy to make and tasted awesome, thanks!!!-02 Jan 2008
