1. Prepare rice noodles following package directions. Put the colander in sink. Using hot pads, carefully pour rice noodles into colander to drain. Rinse with hot water from the faucet; drain again. If desired, use the kitchen scissors to snip noodles into shorter lengths.

2. Meanwhile, drain pineapple in a fine-mesh sieve over a liquid measuring cup. Measure 3⁄4 cup of the juice and discard the rest. Add cornstarch, ginger, and crushed red pepper to the pineapple juice. Use a whisk to mix well. Use the sharp knife to cut each sausage into eight slices.

3. Lightly coat the inside of the large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Add sausage slices and pea pods to skillet. Put skillet on burner. Turn burner to medium-high heat.

Cook 4 to 5 minutes or until sausage is lightly browned and pea pods are bright green and a little tender, using the wooden spoon to stir now and then.

4. Turn burner to medium heat. Stir pineapple juice mixture and carefully add it to the skillet. Cook and stir constantly with the wooden spoon until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 2 minutes more. Stir in 1 cup of the pineapple chunks.

Turn off burner. Stir in rice noodles.
