Pancit has been always an island-family favorite, and usually prepared for family gatherings, parties, pot-luck and almost served at any special event. This dish is great with a dash of lemon or lime squeezed over the noodles. Great also when served over white rice, or is a meal by itself! Your option! Enjoy!

Angela - you can go to a chinese/filpino/japanese grocery store - they will have it there and it is inexpensive! I had a friend that used ramen noodles without the seasonings.

Mrs. Connie, THANK YOU! I lived in Bermuda and my best friend's family used to make this all the time - I haven't seen her in over 20 years and was looking for a recipe! thank you so much for posting! PANCIT is WONDERFUL! Even my picky "Southern" husband likes it
