Rachael shares a quick and easy option for Meatless Monday: Korean-style noodle bowls with mushrooms, broccolini + spinach. The dish is quick and easy to make and, according to Rach, "from experience, I can say, it is equally delicious cold, maybe late at night after you've had a cocktail or two a little bit after your early dinner...."  

Pro Tip from Rach: She likes to use fresh Korean hand-cut noodles or udon for this dish, but says dried noodles or pasta, such as linguine, are fine, too. "It's all going to taste good," she says, adding, "It's all about the sauce. It's delicious—totally delicious!"
