Tasty noodles, My DH loves noodles. The recipe comes from Gourmet.

Top Review by Michelle S.

These are tasty! The combination of flavors is refreshing. I served his along side a sauteed chicken greast and was in heaven. The fresh lemon peel adds great flavor, although I think I might try a little dash of garlic next time to see what that adds. All in all a delightful side dish: colorful and flavorful. Thanks Barb!
