Bean Curd Skin and Pho Noodle Stir Fry

Once again, I fell in love with one of those beautiful pictures while nosing through the internet.  I really have absolutely no clue why those pictures always do me in, but they sure get me every time!  Although, I did end up modifying this recipe so much that it looked nothing like what was posted on The New York Times website.
But honetly, I think mine turned out just as pretty as theirs!  At the last minute I decided to throw some cashews on top too, which made M estatic.  The odd thing, though, was that although the recipe I adapted this from featured green beans, that would be one of the things that I would omit next time I make this.  They didn't really seem to fit, somehow... that, and the jicama that I decided to throw in because it needed to be used up.  So I have made those changes in this version of the recipe- that's why they are in the picture.  I though broccolini would be a good replacement, so there you have it!
I really wanted fresh water chestnuts in this too, as I have never had them and have heard tell that they are ten times better than canned, but the store I went to was all out.  Boo hoo!
But, although I was not overly impressed with the version that I made, it did have it's virtues, and I think this updated version that I am posting here would be quite excellent. 
I really can't seem to get enough mushrooms or noodles, can I?
