Pork Noodle Soup Recipe
My daughter created this soup when she needed to use up some leftover pork. More water can be used for a thinner soup or less water for a noodle dish. It's good with mushroom flavored ramen noodles, too. —Eleanor Niska, Twin Falls, Idaho
- 1/2 cup chopped celery
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
