    This reminds me of my ex-colleague who occasionally made a very similar dish. She always shared some with me. I miss her and this dish so much. Alas, my hubby doesn’t like pumpkin. I’ll try this again in the soon future and see if his tastes have changed. :-)

    Just to let you know that I really like your new cookbook!

    I read the instructions for your pumpkin rice noodles. I am confused.
    When do you add the bean sprouts to the wok? I would appreciate clarification.

    Just tried this recipe and loved it! Even the kids ate it! And my friend, Carolyn – who is your friend too, came over and had some too! Love your recipes!

  4. hi!

    sorry, maybe this is obvious but do i use uncooked pumpkin or precooked pumpkin. and also, the brand of rice noodle i have takes a long time to cook when its boiled. will it cook the same if i throw it in dried? or would it be better to pre boil in this case?
