Quick and Easy Pancit Canton

I really have no clue what I was going to cook last Saturday for our dinner. I wanted something easy to prepare at the same time filling enough for us. I suddenly noticed some extra canton noodles stashed away in the cabinet. My husband used to ask me a month ago when I was going to cook it. I've always responded I'm not sure. I totally forgot about it. So I thought I don't have any excuse anymore not to use it this time. I decided then that I'll cook Pancit Canton. I prefer canton noodles instead of bihon when making pancit because when I use bihon it always end up some portions of the noodles are not fully cooked. With pancit canton minimal effort is needed to mix the noodles. Also it's a lot easier for the kids to eat.
