Pancit Bihon noodle recipe

Reader, meet Rose. Rose grew up in a mountainous area of the Philippines where she lived in a tiny one-roomed wooden house along with 14 relatives. There was no money for school fees and little food. At 7-years-old, Rose was sponsored through Compassion and her life changed.

She was able to go to school, get health check-ups and eat nutritious meals at the local Compassion project. Today, Rose has a Masters in Education and is able to support her family in the Philippines.  

When she was a sponsored child, one of Rose’s favourite meals was Pancit Bihon or Filipino Noodles. Here’s her delicious recipe!

Thank you for this recipe from Rose. It looks delicious though I'll make it with fish as I don't eat meat.
