    Awesome recipe. I would recommend using Fresh Rice Stick Noodle rather than the Dried ones. Its called Banh Pho made by Sincere Orient Food Co. Taste much better and you don't need more than 10 seconds boiling the noodles. - 11/22/09

    Nice, simple, tasty recipe. I made mine with chicken and ate it with fresh sprouts, cilantro and basil with just a splash of siracha for heat. Perfect!! - 10/27/09

    I used 16 oz low sodium chicken broth and skipped the bullion - to cut sodium - 5/27/09

    I tried this recipe today...I only put in one tbsp of of the fish sauce (that was just way too much salt for me). I really liked the taste of the soup without the fish sauce. So I think the next time I make it I'll omit that. I added mushrooms and snow peas..It was pretty good.Thanks for the recipe - 3/14/10
