Asian Pork and Noodle Soup

This soup can be made quickly and features flavors from ginger, sesame, soy sauce and green onions. Cantonese bean thread noodles, also called cellophane noodles, are typically soaked in hot water for 10-15 minutes, then rinsed and used in soups and stir-fries. —Jean Hines, Goodyear, Arizona
