Vegetarian Cheat’s Pad Thai

You said you enjoyed it, so we have one more… for all the people who are hard pressed for time and energy to cook an elaborate meal, here’s Linda Duncan’s version of a Vegetarian Cheat’s Pad Thai from The World’s Easiest Recipes, Volume 3.

Not quite the classic version, but it’s a fantastic substitute when you want takeout but don’t want to leave the house. Dinner will be on the table in 15 minutes! Feel free to add chilli flakes if you like it spicy. You can add cooked chicken or prawns if you don’t want to go vegetarian.
