I like the cream-based chicken soups with my noodles.
The best thing is that Somen usually cooks in 2-3 minutes. I'd boil the water, start heating the soup in the microwave, and then put the uncooked noodles into the boiling water. Both are done about the same time! Ahh I'm such a lazy home cook.
It's ultra yummy with some fresh ground black pepper!
