Nat's Rice Sticks

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Nat Da Brat

Easy, different, very flavourful pasta dish. This is good served warm as a side, or cold as a salad. This is perfect for potlucks or picnics, it's very transportable and doesn't need to be reheated.

This recipe has great potential, but as written, I thought it lacked flavor. After it was done, we found it was excellent with some more curry powder, salt, and sesame seed oil drizzled over it. We substituted asparagus for the broccoli and really enjoyed that addition as well!
