Made this for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag game 2013 and yummy! I did cut the recipe in half and used all chicken broth, added in some mushrooms, onions, garlic and a little red pepper flakes. Delicious! Thank you for posting and this is a keeper!

Delicious and easy also, I did not have any rice noodles so I used cooked thin spaghetti and also added in 2 teaspoons crushed red chili flakes, thanks for sharing Brooke!

This was excellent. The veggies we added included carrots, celery, garlic and mandoline-sliced red pepper. In addition to the fish sauce, we added hoisin. Topped with lots of cilantro and fresh basil. Going on the regular rotation.
