My recipe is a colorful and easy to prepare meal, especially if you cut the ingredients ahead of time, as it cooks quickly and can be on the table in about ten or fifteen minutes. This is great served over Chinese noodles which are crispy. A little extra soy sauce may be served at the table if desired.
