Veggie Stir Fry

I, like many other parents, have a hard time getting my kids to eat enough vegetables.  So for our week of meatless meals here on Blah to Ta-Daa, I wanted to find something that revolved around serving vegetables in a way other than steaming them or serving them up with a side of dressing.

I hunted around the web for recipe ideas and my search took me to the Hidden Valley website.  They had some wonderful ideas.  I chose their Ranch Stir Fried Carrotts and Garden Vegetables recipe and then tweaked it a bit.  I added more vegetables and served it over egg noodles to make it a more appealing and filling meal for my family.  Next time I need add a second packet of the dressing mix, since I added more veggies 1 packet wasn't enough. 

When the starting ingredients look like this and your son says "wow, I like the look of all those vegetables", how can you go wrong?
