Additional Information:
This is an Asian inspired pasta dish, which I got inspired from my Thai colleague, Fon. The cooking method used is similar to Asian fried noodles. I use rye wholegrain pasta here. It is a new Danish product which I bought from Superbest. We had this for dinner tonight. It was the first time that I allowed J to watch a DVD. He watched the Leap Frog Letter Factory which lasted 30 minutes and I had 30 minutes to get dinner ready.
