Add the red peppers and toss lightly for a minute, then add the cabbage and continue cooking until the vegetables are crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Add the sauce mixture and the softened noodles and carefully toss to blend. Cook until the noodles are tender, about a minute, then transfer the noodles to a serving dish.
