The vegetables soak up all the sauce and become highly addictive. Pretty much perfection. Recipe on HBH - link in profile. What should my next "better than takeout" style recipe be?? And should I make these noodles on stories tomorrow??? #drunkennoodles

It's easy and can be made in the crockpot, instant pot, or on the stove. #wildrice #comfortfood
