Prawn and Vegetable Noodles

This is a perfect dish which I cook when I am looking for something to satisfy everyone in the family. It is almost fast food but nutritionally perfect: carbohydrates from the noodles, protein from the prawns and vitamins and minerals from the different vegetables. If you are looking for a vegetarian option just substitute the prawns with fried tofu.
