I don't feel that the egg noodles and ground turkey worked well with the Asian spices.

Secret, I was just going to post this, but you beat me to it, so you win -- a review! I've made this several times over the past couple years. It's not fancy, but it's so easy to make, takes only one pan, and it tastes really great. I usually reduce the red pepper a bit to accomodate DangerBoy. Spicy food is to DangerBoy as Kryptonite is to Superman! The rest of us add a bit of Frank's Red Hot Sauce to our portions at the table.

I love this recipe. It's got a little zip to it and is easy enough to make after a long day at work.
