Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 20 min.

"I love this soup so much, I sometimes double the recipe," notes Michelle Smith from Sykesville, Maryland. "In fact, I've nicknamed it the 'House Specialty'! If I have leftover chicken or pork, I sometimes substitute it for the shrimp."


  • 1 ounce uncooked thin spaghetti, broken into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 cups plus 1 tablespoon water, divided
  • 3 teaspoons reduced-sodium chicken bouillon granules
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen corn
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons reduced-sodium teriyaki sauce
  • 1 cup thinly sliced romaine lettuce
  • 1 can (6 ounces) small shrimp, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons sliced green onion


  1. Cook spaghetti according to package directions.
  2. In a large saucepan, combine 3 cups water, bouillon and salt; bring to a boil. Stir in mushrooms and corn. Reduce heat; cook, uncovered, until vegetables are tender.
  3. Combine the cornstarch, teriyaki sauce and remaining water until smooth; stir into soup. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Reduce heat. Drain spaghetti. Add the spaghetti, lettuce, shrimp and green onion to the soup; heat through.
