Look for rice noodles in the Asian or ethnic foods aisle in your supermarket. They’re ideal for weeknight meals because they don’t need to be boiled— they require only a quick soak before you can stir-fry them with other ingredients. You can also swap in (or add) other vegetables in place of the snow peas, such as green beans or small broccoli florets.
