this is delicious made as is but I would not call it a simple meal as it has a lot of prep work -- once that is done - it went together quickly - I did add pea pods only change - and we added some siracha for heat -- I would make it again and add some shrimp or chicken and then 1 and half times the sauce to make up for that added ingred - its a great recipe -loved it - thanks for sharing your recipe >

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.
