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!
