Stir Fry Asian Noodles with Snow Peans and Ketchup Manis

Stir Frys are so quick and healthy to feed the midweek family. My advice is invest in a good non-stick wok! Make sure all your veggies are chopped and sauces ready for gas flame will heat your Wok up very fast. Play around with differnt noodles, rice, meats and vegtables of couse! I also like to throw in some cashews for added texture and balance in my diet.
