"easy to make and quick so that's a bonus. I think my rice noodles were too thin or maybe I overcooked them because it was hard to mix together. Overall this was just 'meh'. I did add broccoli florets as well. My kids ate my snow peas before I could use them for this so I ended up using sugar snap peas. I precooked the peas and the broccoli and just added them at the end with the sauce. Would be better with fresh veggies over the frozen I'm sure. I'll probably make again with a different noodle and fresh veggies just to re-evaluate.

In short...not bad but won't make the regular dinner rotation."
