Noodle Soup

I've read that noodles can be cooked separately or in the broth. The issues with cooking in the broth are:

  • The noodles will soak up much of the water. There should be enough water so that the consistency of the soup is what you want in the end.
  • The broth will get cloudy.
  • The noodles should be put in late enough so they don't overcook.
