San Francisco Style Garlic Noodles

A super addictive and flavorful Vietnamese and Italian fusion dish popular in San Francisco Bay Area. What’s not to love about noodles tossed with butter, garlic, Asian sauces and parmesan cheese! I highly recommend you to give it a try…it’s that yum! To make it a complete meal, add any protein of your choice and a side salad. And try to control your portion size as it’s quite heavy on your tummy.
