These noodles! I cannot get enough of them.
They're sort of an Asian-style pasta salad. And the sauce is just four ingredients that I am willing to bet you have in your pantry right now.
So simple to make. And so, so satisfying.
These make for a crowd-pleasing side dish on their own, or add shredded chicken for a main dish.
My favorite thing to do with these noodles is to pack them up in jars for easy, grab-and-go lunches.
