Chilli Pork, Vegetable and Noodle Stir Fry

WOW what a dish jam packed with not only lots of vegetables but also all the flavours that I love.... I love using fresh herbs and spices as they add so much more than packet mixes or jars. Best of all this dish wasn't a heavy dish it was quite light and refreshing but very filling.

If you love Asian flavours this dish will definitely satisfy your tastebuds.

I made this last Friday, and it was fantastic. I am on WW and have two little kids who don't like "chewy" meats, so stir-fry's with mince are fantastic for us. Thanks for the inspiration!
