Filipino Colorful Fried Noodles (Pancit)

This super satisfying noodle dish has been eaten in the Philippine’s for centuries. Pancit means “noodles”, either rice noodles or Chinese egg noodles. This version matches delicate rice noodles with pork, Chinese sausage, shredded chicken breast, shrimp, and colorful vegetables.

Pancit -Fried Noodles with Pork, Shrimp, and Vegetables

Pancit can be a one-dish meal or part of a buffet. Any of the meats may be skipped without anyone noticing. Having everything chopped and ready to go will enable for the dish to be assembled quickly. Thin Chinese egg noodles are interchangeable with the rice noodles.
