April Rapid game

In April’s Rapid Tournament the following position occurred.  Vincent had just played 1.Pb3 attacking Paul’s knight which defended the rook on e5.vinceV'SpaulvinceV'Spaul2

Paul responded with 1. …,Ne3! 

Play continued: 2.Pxe3, Rxe3;  3.Qb8+, Rf8;  4.Qxa7, Rxc3  and eventually White won.

The more I look at this position the more it does my head in.  My questions are:  Should White have taken the knight on e3?  and  What alternate move could be played?  Also could Black have played 1. …,Qd2 instead of Ne3, which move is best?
