    I have four children and they like different foods.One likes everything,another likes almost nothing,the last two only likes pizza & hamburgers. At last they all agree on this recipe.It is incredible,the ease of making it.And the flavor is delicious.I would reccomend this recipe to anyone who wants a change of traditional soups.  -  27 Jul 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a great soup, fantastic on cold nights. Since there are only two of us, I place our servings in a smaller pot and cook the noodles only for those portions... keeps the noodles from turning mushy in the leftovers.  -  06 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This soup was delightful, with delicate flavors. It was easy, and fairly quick to make (I cut up all the veggies ahead of time). I added some wine (about 1/2 cup), 2 tbs of rice vinegar for a slight sour kick, and some chopped cilantro for added flavor.  -  31 Jan 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
