Feeling under the weather? This simple noodle soup can help you feel hydrated and nourished. The broth is flavored with ginger, one of the best foods to eat when you're not feeling well, and which can help support your immune system and reduce pain and nausea. Crushed red pepper adds spice, so feel free to reduce the amount if you prefer something milder.
