it serves two to four, making it very difficult to ascertain how much of it is accounted for in the 178 per person calorie value given. Do i quarter it to get that calorie amount, or halve it? When you're on a very strict calorie controlled diet, recipes as vague as this are off the menu.

IF you're on a strict calorie controlled diet you should be calculating the calories yourself when you make it and not relying on here to tell you. Egg noodles from one shop may have very different calories to those from another shop or homemade one.
