Recipe by William Uncle Bill

This recipe appeared in one of our Local Newspapers. However, I made some modifications and added some spices and vegetables. Turned out real good. A nice light soup.

Not what I was looking for, but very nice. Like other reviewers I tossed in a handful of noodles. Reminded me of wonton soup. Thanks for sharing.
