In less than 30 minutes, you can have a simple and delicious stir-fry noodle dish ready to serve. Use a vegetable broth for a vegetarian version or add leftover diced chicken or ground meat for a heartier meal. For the noodles, you can use plain Ramen, spaghetti or even a flavored linguine. This is also a great way to stretch the budget by using up extra vegetables before they spoil. Depending on the ingredients you have on hand, this dish could turn out differently every time.


Step 1

Boil a pot of water and cook the noodles according to the instructions on the package. Aim for al dente, which is when the pasta is tender but slightly firm. Do not overcook the noodles. Drain the water
