My husband loved this recipe. Lemon in common in Thai Cooking. Combined with garlic and red pepper flakes. It adds intense flavor to this stir-fry.

This is great!! I added a few more veggies... broccoli and green beans. And I used whole wheat spaghetti instead of ramen noodles (DH's preference) Very yummy and easy to throw together! Thanks! :)
