4 ounces dried rice noodles
2 teaspoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 large egg, lightly beaten

1/2 cup sliced scallions
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 1/2 tablespoons fish sauce
2 tablespoons no calorie splenda

Recipe Directions for Pad Thai Eating Well

  1. Soak rice noodles in warm water to cover in a large bowl until they are limp and white, about 20 minutes.

  2. Heat oil over high heat in a wok until very hot. Add the garlic and stir-fry until golden, about 10 seconds. Add the egg and cook, stirring, until scrambled, about 30 seconds. Add shrimp and stir-fry until they curl and turn pink, about 2 minutes.

Sprinkle with peanuts and serve immediately.
