Recipe by Becky in Wisconsin
This recipe is from a Cooking Light magazine. You can adjust the heat level to your liking. I am submitting the recipe as printed in the book. However, when I made it, I couldn't find the rice sticks for the recipe, I subbed in soba noodles for this. When I go shopping in a bigger area, I will look for the rice sticks at this one grocery store I like to go to.
