Asian Veggie Glass Noodles Recipe

Asian Veggie Glass Noodles Recipe

I took my mom's version of this noodle dish and added my own touches to make it easier. Mom immigrated from the Philippines and often we would eat pancit, one of the country's most famous noodle dishes. I've lightened up my version by removing the meat and adding more vegetables. I also took some short cuts like using bagged tricolor slaw mix. You can substitute other vegetables you have on hand if desired. If you eat fish / seafood, shrimp is a good addition, too. —Jasmin Baron, Livonia, New York
