Made with grilled pineapple, zucchini, and red peppers then quickly stir-fried with mushrooms, edamame, rice noodles, and a sweet-spicy sauce, this noodle bowl is a quick and utterly delicious dinner. The combination of grilling and sautéeing brings out the best in each of the vegetables, while the sauce is easily customized to your level of desired spiciness or sweetness. Those caramelized bits of pineapple, combined with the spice in the sauce knock this dish out of the ballpark.
