    Cathy17's Note:

    I got this from Chatelaine, a Canadian magazine. This is a lower fat version, but not low on taste! This is really yummy and the fat content is cut by omitting oil, adding lots of vegetables and cutting out fat laden peanuts.

      Good recipe! I made as is except I left out the mint and used very little bean sprouts (they weren't good ones) and used the Oyster sauce because I couldn't find fish sauce. Very tasty and the family enjoyed. For some reason my rice noodles broke up into little pieces has I was tossing the noodles into the dish - not sure why but it didn't change the good taste. I liked that the red peppers still had some crunch. Our leftovers were just fine. Thanks for sharing!

      This is very, very tasty! I also adjusted the recipe quite a bit for our tastes, omitting the shrimp, coriander, mint, and peanuts. Because of all that I thought it might not have a lot of flavor, but it did! FYI- it's not too good as leftovers. The fish sauce takes over and the noodles become very gummy.

      This recipe deserves more than 5 stars. It is incredible. The recipe instructions call for egg, but there was no mention of the number so I assumed it to be one, and it turned out great. I adjusted the recipe for personal preferences by leaving out the mint,bean sprouts and used whole wheat noodles and equal in place of the sugar.I also used precooked chicken and imitation shrimp which reduced the cooking time.I also added a drizzle of sesame oil once everthing was cooked. Thanks for an amazing recipe.
