Delicious noodle dish for two. This recipe uses storebought sauce – it is expensive online, so I recommend checking your local Asian foods market for the best price. Bean sprouts are also pricy and sometimes hard to find with any quality, so it might be worthwhile to learn to sprout your own from mung beans. The rice noodles can be substituted out for just about any kind of noodle if need be.
