Drain noodles and add to pan. Lower heat. Add sauce mixture and toss for 1-2 minutes over medium heat to fully coat. Adjust seasoning/sauce if necessary.

Sounds great! Can't wait to try it. And it could easily become one of my favourite recipes. So thank you lul82 :-)

Made it for a cute girl and she was so impressed that she told all of her friends about me. I highly recommend it, and if you cook Asian food often then you probably already have the ingredients on hand.

I really like it. I doubled everything in the recipe and had too many noodles. I didn't have any coriander, used red chili paste, and green onions for spring onions. I believe it tasted authentic and really good :-) Slightly spicy.

This is a great recipe. I will definitely be making it again.

Delicious. I forgot to add the lime and I used powder coriander because the store didn't carry fresh but I will make this again for sure!

My husband & I both loved this quick & easy dinner! Used a leftover grilled chicken breast & added some fresh green & red bell pepper to the toppings...

Delicious recipe, easy to make. I used rice noodles microwaved to soften for 30 seconds. I omitted the bean shoots but next time will put them in. My whole family loved this meal.
