    Cluich's Note:

    Szechuan recipe, though not too spicy. It's ground pork with cellophane noodles and a fave of the little one, though I think she likes it more for its name than anything else. Translated, the name of the dish is "Ants Climbing Trees. :) Don't let the list of ingredients or number of steps fool you either. This is really easy to make.

      All in all very good. I added mushrooms and zuccini for a little variety and used chili paste instead of chili bean sauce and it was nice and spicy! I think I soaked the noodles too long so next time I'll be sure not to do that oh and I sliced the pork I had instead of 'grounding' it.

      I also excluded the sugar as my husband is on a low-sugar diet.

      I think we'll have it again!
