Macaroni Fishcake Soup

Here is another of our quick fixes. I tend to have some fish cake or fish roll stuffed in the freezer for "emergency meals". You know, meals when you get home at 8pm and realised that you are staving but have to put something on the table in 20 minutes?

I often associate macaroni with being sick. Now, I associate it with comfort and quick. Warm chicken soup with fish cakes and ham brings it up another notch higher.

It's no fuss food to the max!

Macaroni Fishcake Soup
1 or 2 fish cake sliced
100 grams of ham sliced
200 grams of macaroni
1 ltre chicken stock
chinese veges- such as bak choy or choy sum
spring onions chopped
pepper to season

Boil stock and cook macaroni. Put all veges, sliced fish cake and ham into the pot. Cook for around 5 minutes or so. Serve with spring onions and a sign of relief that dinner is done.

My favorite is chicken and macaroni soup - so macaroni is definitely not "sick" food for me. As comfort and quick as it can be :)...many yums for me.

I never thought of cooking macaroni in chicken broth! That's like western version of udon (maybe not a good example). I'm going to try this because my kids love macaroni, but I'm tired of creamy or tomato base! Love it!
