While cruising the aisles at the Asian grocery store, I stumbled upon these rotini-shaped rice noodles. While round and flat rice noodles aren't unusual when it comes to Vietnamese cuisine, Italian-shaped rice noodles are a little less common. Although, really, since Vietnam has far more rice fields than wheat ones, this wasn't totally unexpected.
Like my Gluten-Free Cha Gio (Vietnamese Spring/Egg Rolls) recipe, there are plenty of Vietnamese dishes that are naturally gluten-free, but it doesn't hurt to make posts pointing that out for my non-Vietnamese readers. While this Vietnamese stir-fry could easily be made with longer Vietnamese rice noodles, the rice rotini noodles provided a nice variation. If you can't find any rice rotini noodles, you can substitute with wheat rotini if gluten isn't a concern.
