A very good noodle dish! Clearly explained, well laid out and and easy to follow. Lacking bean sprouts and not really liking water chestnuts, I omitted them, but did dice a green pepper and use that instead. Other than that, this recipe was followed to the letter, and gave us a wonderfully spicy stir-fried noodle dish, chock-full of goodness, I think the chilli oil in particular is a good addition here. I made this for DH and I, which gave us enough left for lunch today ..... Just as good!!! Thanks Rhonda, we really enjoyed this! Made for My 3 Chefs, November 09
