Now who doesn’t love a gorgeous bowl of noodles doused in asian flavors with a bit of crunchy peanuts and grilled chicken? Throw in some fresh, crisp vegetables and scallions and before you know it there’s an asian invasion inside your mouth. Wow I am really on a roll lately with bad puns…
I found these noodles at this AMAZING gluten free store that is unfortunately 2 miles away from my house. I say that because it has an incredible selection which makes my eyes bulge and my money disappear. The appeal of packaged gluten free goodies is often too tempting and I opt not to indulge but some hearty gluten free pasta can be a girls best friend when in a pinch. Fortunately for the BF though because this was an on the fly meal for him, which he gobbled up faster than I could clean the kitchen.
The saddest part though is that I made this months ago, like maybe in June?? I took the pictures and then left them to hang out on my phone till tonight when I was cleaning through the clutter and all the 1,000’s of apps I have & don’t use.
This is your fairly classic combination of asian flavors and as always make to order for your own taste buds!
