Vietnamese Beef-Noodle Soup with Asian Greens

Time: 30 minutes

Prep Pointer: Take care not to overcook the noodles, as they’ll turn soggy in the soup.

Serve with Sesame Wontons: Cut 16 wonton wrappers in half diagonally; arrange on 2 baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Brush 2 teaspoons dark sesame oil over wrappers. Sprinkle evenly with ¼ teaspoon salt. Bake at 375° for 7 minutes or until crisp and edges are browned.
