Veggie & Noodle Stir Fry

Inspired by some Chinese take out that I ordered this weekend, I decided to whip up my own ramen noodle stir fry. While take out is one of my guiltiest of pleasures, it is definitely not waistline friendly  – although you have to indulge every now & then! This Veggie & Noodle Stir Fry recipe is a fresh spin & upgrade to your standard instant ramen noodle dinner.
