Spicy Thai Noodles

I got this recipe from a friend of mine who would bring it to our Life Groups Chinese New Year party year after year.  Seriously this friend is not just a rock in my life but she is an amazing cook as well so I hope to steal more of her recipes in the future! Thanks Karla for filling my plate with yumminess every time we are together.
