    Engrossed's Note:

    Submitted for RSC #9. This whole recipe was a new experience for me...I was so happy it worked out! I made it as a last effort for the contest after 2 failed recipes. I knew what fresh Asian flavors I liked together so that is what inspired the meatballs. I was impressed with how flavorful they turned out! They did end up a little hot so feel free to cut down on the peppers. I loved the rice noodles so much that they will be come a regular quick meal in my home. I love the suggestions from reviewers to bake the meatballs. Why didn't I think of that? I do think the sesame oil is a very important flavor enhancer for the noodles. Thanks to everyone who tried this for the contest!

      Very, very good! Will be adding this to my Asian dish collection. Definitely a keeper and easy to make. Only change was in used very thin egg noodles since that was what I had on hand.

      I had really high hopes for this recipe. I omitted the cilantro and chili flakes due to picky kids and per other reviews I baked the meatballs. That being said I got 24 meatballs. This turned out kinda bland, prob due to the omitted spices. I wil try this again and attempt to spice it up more.
      *Note: serve IMMEDIATELY or the noodles get gummy.

      Whole family really enjoyed this! I used ground turkey and chicken broth, and added lots more of the aromatics, 'cuz we like our stuff highly seasoned. It took awhile for the noodles to start softening in cold water; next time, I'll use hot. But, the noodle cooking method was easy, and they came out great. Next time, I might try adding the carrots and green onions when I add the noodles, for a crisper presentation. This dish feels very healthy, plus it was easy enough, and I'll certainly use it in the future!
