Tips and variation

You can either buy fresh or dried egg noodles at the grocery or fresh. You can also use spaghetti, if you don’t have egg noodles.

When cooking the noodles, do not rinse the noodles after cooking. You should leave them starchy as this would help thicken the sauce so it clings better to the shrimp and veggies.

You can store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

You can reheat in the microwave or in a saucepan until heated through.
