For this chili garlic noodle bowl recipe, we used rice noodles. Rice noodles are a great option, especially if someone has a gluten sensitivity. I used the pad Thai sized noodles that can be found in the Asian foods section of the grocery store. The chili garlic sauce can be found in the same section.
