Week 12: Chinese Noodle Soup
This week's soup uses leftover pork roast or Chinese takeout combined with noodles and veggies for a quick weeknight meal. If you have chicken or beef leftover instead, that would also be delicious.

This is a very tasty low cal soup. The recipe originally suggested you order Chinese Roast Pork take-out. I used pork loin we had left over from the previous night and it turned out great.
