You can also add Bean Sprouts, hot Vietnamese peppers, cucumber, scallions, and other herbs and greens...
The next step is to set out a large bowl of warm water. Dip one Rice Paper Wrapper in the warm water for about 10 seconds. Lay it on a plate. Put the shrimp (small shrimp are best- these were large, so I cut them in pieces) and water chestnuts in the center, about 1/3 down, as shown in the photo.

Top the shrimp with the herbs and greens, and then with the Bun Noodles, and then with more herbs and greens.

Fold the bottom of the wrapper up over the filling, and then fold the sides in. Then roll it up, quick and tight...

And Voilà! You have made a Vietnamese Summer Rolll!
Soak the next wrapper and do it all again, and keep doing it until you have run out fillings, and/or wrappers!
They are delicious served with a lemon-y Nuoc Cham Dipping Sauce, and while you can make your own from scratch (there are lots of Vietnamese recipes online), Saucey Sauce makes a truly authentic and delicious one: https://getsauceynow.com/
