Noodles: It’s National Noodles Month

Foodie Extravaganza is where we celebrate obscure food holidays by cooking and baking together with the same ingredient or theme each month. Posting day is always the first Wednesday of each month.

The nice thing about this dinner is how versatile it is.  You can use any vegetables you have in the refrigerator.  In this case I used onions, mushrooms, sweet peppers, and snow peas.  You can also use any pasta that you have on hand.  I always like to keep a package of rice noodles in the cupboard because they only take minutes to prepare.


This is one of my families favorite meals.  I often plan it on the weekly menu for Meatless Monday but they never complain if I am running on empty and make it because it's quick, easy and I didn't plan anything else.  I hope your family enjoys it as well.
