Ok, these didn't really turn out looking very good, but they were pretty tasty. We buy our fresh rice noodles at our local Asian grocery store (99 Ranch). You can cook these along with basil, garlic, and some chili paste and get a pretty yummy dinner. Here's how we did it. :)
Fresh Rice Noodles with Basil and Chili
Start by heating chopped garlic and a spoonfull of chili paste in a pan. I recommend cutting you garlic smaller than this cause mine ended up being a little too big and took a while to cook.
Meanwhile chop up the leaves from about 4 sprigs of basil.
When the oil is hot and the garlic begins to brown add your noodles and basil to the pan. Add a couple splashes of soy sauce at this point too.
We also added some mushrooms and tofu too at this point, but any vegetables would be good
Garnish with more basil and serve. :)
