Yields1 Serving

 1 cup Rice Noodles
 1 tsp Sesame Oil
 1 Carrot, cut into sticks
 1 Cucumber
 2 tsp rice vinegar
 2 tsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
 1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
 1 cup shredded red cabbage
 12 oz Meat or protein of choice

1

Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting any salt; drain.
Return to pan; cover and keep warm. Meanwhile, for sauce, in a small bowl whisk together the next 10 ingredients (through crushed red pepper).

2

Coat a 10-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high. Add meat, half at a time, and cook 1 to 2 minutes or just until browned. Remove from skillet.

3

Reduce heat to medium. Add ¼ cup of the sauce to skillet; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until liquid is nearly evaporated, stirring to scrape up crusty brown bits. Return meat with any juices; cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes more or until heated through.

4

Divide pasta among individual bowls and drizzle with remaining sauce. Top with meat, cucumber, cabbage and carrot and sprinkle with basil. Top with additional basil, if desired, and serve with lime wedges.
