Spicy Ginger Pasta w/ Veggies

Before

This is a great recipe for when you have leftover pasta & want to kick it up a notch. I have recently been on a mei fun kick & order it whenever we get Chinese takeout. But as is common with takeout, I end up with a TON of leftovers & get sick of eating the same thing over & over again. So here is my self-made recipe to bring boring noodles back to a delicious entree.

This recipe makes about (5) one-cup servings & is packed with almost all of your recommended daily amount of vitamin A which is great for your vision & immune system!
