Pansit is a delicious Filipino rice noodle dish that I learned from my friend Rob Aguilla’s mother – who always made the most amazing Filipino food. This is a really healthy recipe with tons of vegetables and meats in it. You can easily skip the meats to make this dish vegetarian altogether. I love to top my Pansit off with crushed peanuts and some cayenne pepper.
