Penne Pasta Stir-Fry (Asian-Style)

Total Time

I got this from when I was looking for new recipes to fix for my grandmother. My grandmother is diabetic, so I always visit these sites. This is easy, Asian style. I had never sauteed or stir-fried anything, but this turned out well. Just make sure not to overcook the vegetables as I did, or else it will stick to the pan. I did not use green pea. I made my own variation of vegetables; okra, carrots, green beans, red and green bell peppers. I also added a mushroom, and I used its water to substitute chicken broth. Mushroom broth is really good in soups!! Also, use sesame oil if you want it more oriental style.
