No Meat, Lotsa Heat Pad Thai

“This recipe was given to me by an almost vegetarian friend. You can easily add shredded chicken, beef, fish or cooked scrambled egg. I included the recipe for fish sauce, but you could easily use the commercially available kind. This dish is a treat for anyone who likes spicy and/or thai food. Prep. time includes marinating”
