"My husband enjoyed this one. I don't care for shrimp, but I served myself a bowl before adding the shrimp at the end. It was very good."

"Very simple recipe and easily adaptable to what I had on hand. I used dry medium egg noodles from my pantry and added sliced mushrooms. Great when served with a little extra soy sauce!"
