I adapted this recipe to suit ingredients that I had on hand. I had roasted a pork loin rubbed with the spice rub from Chinese-Style Spareribs recipe #105463. I sliced the leftover pork very thinly and cut into strips which I used in this soup. Because the pork was already cooked, I didn't add it to the sesame oil immediately. I also used a package of Top Ramen noodles (without the seasoning packet) instead of the fresh linguine. Unfortunately, I also didn't have any bean sprouts on hand, either. Still, the seasoned "crust" from the meat provided a nice flavor to the soup and made a great dish. This was simple enough for a tired work night, but still full of delicious flavor. Hubby and I were very, very happy with it. Thanks for posting.
