I really, really love Asian style foods. That is all I have to say about that.

** This dish works as great on a busy weeknight, as it does for Saturday night company. Add stir-fried chicken, beef, or seared shrimp if desired. Bruce likes to top with a seasoned fried egg, giving it an impressive “international flare”. lol!
