    What a wonderful dinner for the summer. Light but filling. So many fresh veggies now that could be added as well. Of course being inexpensive doesn’t hurt either! I haven’t made these kind of noodles at home yet, but going to try.

    This dish looks very delicious! I love Thai curries and also enjoy crisp sauteed veggies, so this meal would become a quick favorite. I like that you added the lemon zest; I’m sure it adds a lot of flavor. Rice noodles are also one of my favorite types of Asian noodle types.
