Made this recipe last night for DH and our friends. Everyone seemed to enjoy it and all went back for seconds. Made for "Use Your Noodle" tag game. Thanks, Rita.

A wonderful, delicious, fresh tasting meal. I used the vermicelli rice sticks (they resemble little dried angel hair pasta bird nests) and they crisped and puffed up beautifully in the deep oil fryer; but I think this dish would be equally delicious served over cooked rice noodles or steamed jasmine rice. Use your personal preference. GREAT dish, Rita!

yum rita, this was really, really good! i only used the red bell, since it was just two of us & i didnt want to use half of 2 peppers, the only rice wine i could find was sweet cooking sake & i added another cup of bok choy since i had it & i love my veggies. bummer but my noodles didnt puff up, thats my fault though, i didnt completely submerge in oil...fried them for a minute & realized it wasnt going to work so i ended up throwing them in boiling water...they still came out great! i'm going to be making this dish often! made for the use your noodle tag game (august)!!
