I just finished eating this meal and loved it. It was easy to make and tasted like something you get at a healthy resturant. It didn't taste low-fat, the only thing I didn't like was the peanut butter, although adding a great flavor, caused the sause to be a little gritty. As I ate this I wanted to call someone to tell them how good it was. I didn't have all the vegetables that were asked for, but I put in what I had and it still worked. This is one of those recipes you can't mess up. I hope you like it as much as I did!
This recipe tasted really good. It was very easy to make. I used rice noodles instead of ramen noodles. We didn't have chilli on hand so we dropped that from the recipe.
