“This is a great, lite dish. It's also very filling. If you want a lite dinner with a great Asian flavor you will love this one. My husband isn't crazy about bean thread noodles so if you aren't crazy about bean thread noodles try substituting thin spaghetti noodles. It still has the same great flavor!”

  3. Remove to plate. Cut into 1 inch cubes when cooled enough to handle.

  8. We like onions so I add more. We also like the crunch of the peanuts but you can add as many or as few as you like.
