Very tasty, but I think next time I will add a bit more soy sauce for flavor.

It was a good soup, but I found it a little bland so I added garlic salt to taste.

This is very good and very quick. I used dry egg noodles from my pantry also. Served it with a tossed salad. So easy!

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!
