Meatballs and Noodle Soup (Almondigas)

['1 lb (450 g) lean ground pork', '2 green onions, finely chopped, plus more for garnish', '1 egg, beaten', '3 tbsp (25 g) all-purpose flour', 'Salt and freshly ground black pepper', '1 tbsp (15 ml) olive oil', '2 cloves garlic, minced', '1 onion, chopped', '8 cups (1.9 L) chicken broth', '1 tbsp (15 ml) fish sauce', '2 oz (57 g) misua noodles', 'Japanese somen noodles', 'capellini noodles or angel hair pasta']

In a large bowl, combine the pork, green onions, egg and flour. Season with salt and pepper. Mix together well, then form into 1-inch (2.5-cm) meatballs. Set aside.
Heat the oil in a pot over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and onion. Sauté until the onion begins to soften, about 2 minutes.
Add the broth and fish sauce, and bring to a boil. Drop the meatballs into the boiling broth and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the meatballs are cooked. Add the misua noodles and cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Season with fish sauce (or salt) and pepper, to taste.
Garnish with the chopped green onions. Serve hot.
