How about a dinner that is super easy, super quick AND will leave you wanting to lick the pan clean? You've got to try these Sweet & Spicy Asian Noodles! I love any dinner that incorporates veggies and still has the kids gobbling it up! This is so versatile, you can just add so many different veggies that you either A. know your family will love or B. that you want to get them to eat so you add them to this super amazing sauce.
I'm not usually much into noodles, but I really loved this meal. I think the sauce won me over plus I packed it full of zucchini which I happen to love.
I also love things like this that have the competing flavors that offset each other so well. If this was just spicy or just sweet there's not way it would work (isn't there a commercial about that?). Anyway, I just love the pineapple juice/Sriracha combo. I'm going to be putting this idea to work on some other dishes as well.
Quick! Go chop up your favorite veggies and whip up this delicious sauce! It's time for dinner!
