I made this recipe by mixing together elements of Won Ton soups I had already made and enjoyed. I always thought it was way more complicated. Putting together the Won Tons can be a little time consuming, but you can make them ahead of time and freeze them too (up to 3 months). This is a pretty filling soup, but can be played with to either be the main course or the starter. It also looks like it took much more time than it did. I don't order it from the take out place anymore unless I don't have the stuff on hand or I feel lazy.
