      Great quick soup - I made this for a family dinner, and everyone loved it. Just the right amount of heat (as my mom put it, "Food that bites back a little"). Adding the herbs really changes the tenor of the soup and makes it a soup with a lot of flavor, and not just heat. If you're making this in advance, try steamed rice instead of the noodles - they won't absorb quite as much liquid. Thanks for the recipe!

      Can I only give this 5 stars?? This was so fast and easy to put together, and the flavor was FANTASTIC! I threw in a few bean sprouts at the end, and served it with sriracha sauce. The balance of flavors in this soup is incredible. I have long been afraid to make pho (or lazy, I dunno), and now I have absolutely no reason to go through the trouble! Thank you Sue, for another absolutely wonderful recipe!
