Asparagus and Shiitake Mushroom Noodle Bowl

February 17, 2015


Author Notes: No matter the cuisine, noodle soups are always comforting. This dish is great served as a soup but you can also reduce the broth by half and serve as a pasta dish. Try adding some grilled chicken, pork, or tofu for a more robust meal.
