Shrimp Pancit

My sister in law is from the Philippines. When we lived in California, she would make up Pancit, Lumpia, and Adobo. So I was excited when I joined a site for recipes called Tablespoon and saw their Shrimp Pancit recipe. So I made it last night.

Let me tell you. I’m not Filipino, but I was impressed. It was so good and so filling. So I’m gonna share it with you.
