Two days ago, we were extremely tired and very hungry, and the need for a good, quick dinner was obvious. When I'm stuck with no dinner, pasta is usually my first choice. There are few things easier than whipping up some tomato sauce, boiling pasta and shredding a bit of cheese on top.
This time, we decided to opt for noodles with stir-fried veggies. They were really good, and we enjoyed them again the next day!
2 onions, chopped
3 carrots, very finely chopped
1 bell pepper, thinly sliced
Approx. 1\2 of canned sliced mushrooms
A bit of hot green pepper, thinly chopped
A handful of halved walnuts
(Of course, modifications can be made according to what you have on hand and what your family prefers!)
My husband stir-fried it all together, adding:
5-6 tbsp. of soy sauce
3 tbsp. of chili sauce
1 tsp. sugar
A bit of ketchup
Then I cooked the noodles according to the instructions on the package, mixed the noodles and the veggies, and voila! A quick late dinner for two starved people was ready.
