Recipe is an original.

So I needed to make something for dinner because my pasta leftover from the other night were only going to go so far and I needed something different. I had veggies and actually intended on adding chicken to this but forgot to take it out of the freezer to thaw so I went vegetarian tonight!  I also didn’t want to have to wait for rice to cook nor deal with the mess that comes with cooking rice so I decided on some noodles. I had made a sauce recipe before that was basically soy sauce and honey so I made a rendition of that and just added ingredients until it tasted right. And then we have what you see here!  It was incredibly easy and tasty. You can use whatever veggies you like. I definitely recommend adding the red pepper flakes to combat all the salty and sweet from the sauce. And Chinese Five Spice is just awesome.

Taco!
