"Tried this last night and my husband said it was very tasty. He usually doesn't comment unless he really likes it. I added sauted chicken bites, and you could add shrimp too. You can feed a family of 4 for less than $2.00 if you don't add meat."

I scaled back for one and used a packet of dried Asian noodles which had to be boiled for 2 minutes and continued with the recipe for noodles that ended up with good flavour and the crunch of the peanuts made for enjoyable and very generous side which I could not complete, thank you loveinretirement made for Alphabet Soup Game.
