Chard and shiitake mushrooms provide the creamy noodle meal with a considerable portion of vitamin A (good for the eyesight) and stress-killing magnesium. Asians appreciate the aromatic mushroom with its light garlic aroma as a natural remedy for inflammations, headaches and stomach ailments.

Those who pay attention to fat calories use low-fat sour cream varieties. Wholemeal pasta brings additional fibre into play.
