Making Wonton Soup is just so simple. You should have most of the recipe ingredients in your pantry and you can always pick up the fresh ingredients the next time you shop.  I served it for dinner one day after we had a biggish lunch.  Wonton Soup was just right that night, easy, tasty, satisfying and just the right amount.
