If you have bone broth on hand and some basic veggies, chicken and spices, you can make some in-house, short-cut pho in a snap. Hence "Snappy Pho"...you catch on quick! While in my humble opinion (although...does anyone else's matter?), pho isn't pho without the soft delicious noodles, you don't need them to make a delicious asian-infused soup. But the noodles come highly recommended. I used miracle noodles for an authentic effect and consistency; however, zoodles or kelp noodles will also work.
