Meatball and Noodle Stir-fry
with mushrooms / carrots / snow peas

Active: 35 min Total: 35 min

The flavors in this noodle stir-fry are about as different as you can get from Monday's Spanish-inspired meal, but it uses leftover meatballs as a protein.
Smarts: Slice the meatballs into quarters before cooking so that they will heat up faster (and will be all the better if you're using chopsticks to eat them!).

really good, but could have used a bit more pop of flavor, it was a little bland.

So quick and easy. Really nice use of leftover meatballs. Flavor didn’t wow me, but was pretty good.

Delicious “healthy” lo mein Used snap peas instead of snow, rice noodles because it’s what I had, and added cashews. Great left overs.
