Broccoli and Beef Noodles

Asian inspired, fast

My girls love noodles, but a lot of asian inspired recipes are too complicated and spicy for them. Both gobbled these up so I hope they are a hit with your little ones.

Noodle hint for littlies: If the noodles are really long and difficult to handle I get some scissors out once I have served them and chop them shorter. This makes them easier for little ones to scoop them into their mouths.
