Comments This is great stuff. You can substitute everything. We use soba noodles and homemade broth and lemongrass paste. If you do not have soba, use angel hair pasta.

The pasta will still have a chewy bite when the chicken is ready, but it continues to cook while the soup stands.
The addition of fresh lemongrass gives the soup a pleasing, subtle sour-lemon flavor and aroma.
Serve with rice crackers and lime wedges.
