  • Summary

    There are layers and layers of flavors in these easy noodles that are ready in 30 minutes. Soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, lime juice, ginger, and Asian chili-garlic sauce (found in the Asian aisle of most major grocery stores) coat the noodles beautifully. They're sweet and sour with a very subtle heat from the ginger and chili-garlic sauce. Red peppers, sugar snap peas, water chestnuts, and baby corn add texture and crunch. I kept the recipe vegetarian but you can add the protein of your choice including chicken, pork, shrimp, or beef. Who needs takeout when homemade tastes better and you're in control of the ingredients.
