I am such a sucker for any kind of Asian noodles – hot, sticky, cold – you name it. I will eat every single strand of noodle left on my plate, guaranteed.

But when you can make a quick noodle stir-fry right at home and use up all those lingering veggies in your fridge, it’s even better.

Hey, it’s quicker than ordering delivery, right? And you can load up on all that garlic goodness. The hubs is just going to have to deal.

Plus, you don’t need any kind of special noodles here. I used standard spaghetti noodles. Done. If you don’t have spaghetti pasta, you can use linguine, fettuccine, or even angel hair.

Let’s just make this easy enough so you don’t have to visit any kind of specialty store.

You can also keep this completely meatless or add your desired protein as needed.

I used shrimp because that’s what I had on hand but a combination of shrimp, chicken and even beef would be absolute perfection!
