My daughter's been super picky lately when it comes to eating different foods. She wants to stick to the same things, and let's be honest, that's a pain! I love to make new and different meals all the time, so we compromised. Now she gets to pick out recipes she likes, and we adapt them together, to make something we both love!
That's how this stir fry came to life! We have no problems with her eating veggies and shrimp, in fact she loves most veggies. But hates pizza. Not a typical 7 year old at all! She also loves pasta, so we decided to add in the rice noodles. I had no idea how easy these were to prepare, so they fit in nicely.
Overall, this dish turned out great. As usual, it's a quick meal and fairly healthy too. You can use beef or chicken instead of shrimp if you prefer and use a different blend of veggies. The sauce is flavorful and it's good reheated stir fry style in a skillet or wok the next day.
