Sotanghon & Patola Soup with Shrimp & Chicken

My husband is fond of mixing canned sardines (tomato based) and noodles particularly misua and sotanghon.  One time, he requested that I cook canned sardines with patola and sotanghon because he just felt like eating one.

I was about to open the Ligo canned sardines when I heard the shrimps and minced chicken crying out to me to be noticed, "use us, use us".  My heart melted so I put back the can of sardines in the cupboard and thawed the shrimps and minced chicken instead. Reasons, reasons, reasons.  I change my mind a lot when I cook depending on the state of my mood (evil green) AND also because I don't want sardines and sotanghon at this particular moment AND also because the last time I cooked sardines with noodles (I used misuah), half of it went to waste. And so here it was, my  sotanghon & patola soup with shrimp and chicken.

We had this soup dish for supper a while back.  It is great for dinner specially during this Qatar winter season. It's about 15 degrees Celsius at the moment and this bowl of sotanghon & patola soup with shrimp and chicken beats that's winter chills.  So go get wrap up warm and whip up this delicious soup dish.

By the way, when I served the soup to my husband a while back, I actually forgot to garnish it with the chopped green onions :D my bad.
