    I too have this recipe in my Cooking Class Chinese Cookbook. I bought a nice head of cabbage at the farmers market and came across this recipe in my book and decided to try it. I halved the recipe and it still made a lot of soup for one person. Not to worry thou, it was so good I ate half of it the first night and the rest of it the next night. I used a pkg. of Ramen Noodles and half of the flavoring packet. Sooo Good!

    I've been making this for years from my Chinese Cooking Class Cookbook. Obviously, to give it 5 stars, we really love this soup for taste and simplicity. I make this as directed with one exception: I often substitute pot stickers for the thin egg noodles. Thanks for posting Ice Cool Kitty!

    I made half the recipe using a 4 oz boneless pork chop, Bok Choy for the cabbage, and angel hair pasta. So quick and easy, and tastes great too. I'll definitely be making this again. Thanks Kitty. Made for Unrated Asian Recipe Tag.
