   To Make Oriental Meatballs: preheat oven to 375F. In a medium bowl,
   combine all ingredients. Roll heaping teaspoons of meat mixture into 30
   balls of about 1/2 inch diameter.  Place on a nonstick 15 x 10 jelly
   roll pan, or coat pan with non-stick vegetable spray. Bake in preheated
   oven until lightly browned, 10 - 15 minutes. Drain off any drippings
   before serving. Makes 30 meatballs.
   While meatballs bake, cook noodles in lightly salted boiling water, until
   just tender. Cook fresh noodles 3 - 5 minutes, cook dry noodles 5 - 7
   minutes. Drain cooked noodles; rinse with hot water. Pour noodles into a
   medium bowl; keep warm. In saucepan used to cook noodles, combine broth,
   1/3 C water, soy sauce and cornstarch. Bring to a boil, stirring
   constantly.  Add drained noodles; stir gently until coated. Cut green
   onions into brushes or into 2-inch pieces. Cut each piece length wise into
   thin strips.
   For small serving (305 calories) spoon 1/2 Cup of noodles onto each place.
   Top with 5 meatballs.
   For large serving (610 calories) spoon 1 Cup of noodles on each plate. Top
   with 10 meatballs.
   For all menus garnish with green onion strips or brushes.
   Makes 6 small servings, or 3 large servings
