This recipe was inspired by a segment of The Chew that I saw last year sometime. You can find the recipe here.
This recipe is simple and flavorful. Actually, it feels like it is less a recipe than just a bunch of things thrown into a pot. On nights that we are feeling lazy everything just goes into the pot on top of the freshly cooked, drained noodles and stirred together!
