I found only one other recipe here at Zaar for Longevity Noodles. I am sure that is it delicious (it IS a Nurse Di recipe! and her stuff is great), but for me, quick and easy with fewer ingredients works better sometimes. This is a cross between chicken noodle soup and egg drop soup. Add some minced garlic for a bit of flavor variety.
