I’ll admit, I have *a couple* of quirks, like reading magazines from back to front and taking almost every quiz I come across: “Which TV Mom Are You?” on Facebook or “Who Are You Meant To Be?” from my Oprah magazine. The latest quiz I took was Mueller’s®  Pasta Matchmaker that blends three of my favorite things  ~ taking quizzes, cooking and pasta. I won’t keep you in suspense. Based upon my answers, my recipe is. . . drumroll . . . Asian Pan Fried Noodles with Shrimp.

Last week I made Chicken Lettuce Wraps, another dish with an Asian flare. I was hoping there’d be leftovers for lunch the next day but we ate every last bite, leaving me wishing ~ craving ~ more of that type of food. The quiz somehow had my number the day I took it and this dish really hit the spot.

Here’s what the Mueller’s® Pasta Matchmaker quiz looks like: 

  1. What’s your main ingredient? (Beef, chicken, seafood or veggies)
  2. Who are you eating with tonight?
  3. How motivated is your inner chef today?
  4. What’s tonight look like (activity-wise)?
  5. What’s outside your window? (my weather was cold and gray)

In just a few seconds I had a customized recipe for my particular evening. I made a quick trip to my local Kroger for the ingredients and when I got home I took the quiz again a couple more times (you can take it as much as you’d like). Now I have a few new recipes saved for those nights when I need a little inspiration.

    • Mueller’s® medium egg noodles
    • shrimp
    • lite soy sauce
    • shredded carrots
    • thinly sliced red bell pepper
    • frozen shelled edamame (green soybeans)
    • teriyaki stir-fry sauce marinade
    • toasted sesame seeds (optional)

I already had the last two ingredients at home, black pepper and canola oil and I garnished the dish with a little freshly chopped cilantro.

Did you know toasting nuts or seeds intensifies their flavor?

How to toast sesame seeds: Before starting this recipe, add a small amount of sesame seeds to a dry skillet over medium heat. Toast for 3-4 minutes or until lightly browned, shaking the pan occasionally. Remove the sesame seeds from the skillet and reserve.

Directions:

Cook the noodles according to the package directions, omitting salt then place the drained noodles on a paper-towel lined plate and pat them dry really well.From the Mueller’s®  Pasta Matchmaker ~ simple, any night Asian Pan Fried Noodles with Shrimp.

Combine the shrimp, 1 tablespoon of soy sauce and the pepper in a bowl. From the Mueller’s®  Pasta Matchmaker ~ simple, any night Asian Pan Fried Noodles with Shrimp. Make it in under 30 minutes; ideal for company, too!

Heat the oil in a wok or the large skillet you toasted the sesame seeds in over high heat. Add the cooked noodles and remaining soy sauce and cook 5-7 minutes or until the noodles are browned lightly and crisp; stirring occasionally. Remove from the skillet and set aside.

Add the shrimp and carrots to the skillet and cook 2 minutes or until the shrimp begin to turn pink. Drop in the bell pepper and edamame and cook 2-3 minutes more. Fold in the noodles and (teriyaki) sauce to the skillet, stirring to combine and cook until hot. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Whether you’re a seasoned home cook like me, just starting out or somewhere in between, we’re all faced with the ‘what’s for dinner?’ blues sometimes. When I first started cooking we didn’t have Pinterest or even the internet (which gives you some idea how long I’ve been cooking). Taking the Mueller’s Pasta Matchmaker quiz takes some of the pressure off of all of us and if you’re a planner, you can even take the quiz 7 times and plan an entire week’s menu!

            • Challenge #5: March 5 – March 18
            • Challenge #6: March 19 – April 1

The next time I make Asian Pan Fried Noodles with Shrimp I may change things up a bit by adding bean sprouts or water chestnuts for some crunchy texture or a squeeze of fresh lime juice for a little zing. I could even switch out the shrimp for boneless chicken or beef and if I’m feeling spicy, a little crushed red pepper. These recipes are delicious and can easily stand alone, but they also serve as a base for a whole new dish.

Another thing I like about Asian Pan Fried Noodles with Shrimp is that it goes from stove to table in under 30 minutes so it’s great for a weeknight meal, but with all the levels of flavor, I could easily entertain with it, too.
