Deconstructed Wonton Soup

Wonton is one of my favorite types of soup. When I wanted to whip up a homemade version, I decided to take a shortcut and combined pork meatballs with wide egg noodles. If I have them on hand, I'll add sliced water chestnuts, barbecued pork or sesame seeds to switch it up. —Joanne Neidhamer, Tuolumne, California

    Delicious, quick, and easy! I used matchstick carrots, as I don’t love celery and it was great. Will have to double this next time!

    Really good soup and quick and easy to make. I doubled the recipe and used an entire pound of sausage.

    Our family loved this soup! The pork meatballs are a great alternative to traditional wontons and you get a lot of fresh flavor from the basil and green onions.
