Fried Noodles

You may have spent yesterday lusting over Melvie’s spring rolls. (Maybe that was just me?!) But we’re back today to give you one more homemade dish from my friend Alexa’s nanny. This dish is a true crowd-pleaser. Warm and satisfying, it’s a great way to feed a big group. It’s also the exact same recipe as the spring roll, all you need to do is add the noodles. And, like the spring rolls, its a fun dish to eat, especially if you add some chopsticks.
