    Really tasty and easy. I added broccoli slaw, red cabbage and more red pepper and peanut butter than recipe calls for, though. Really good! - 6/28/11

  • OK this was just YUM-OH! I'm bringing it to work tomorrow for a Chinese Pot Luck we are having. I added a bag of brocolli slaw, sliced red pepper and scallions for the veggies. I also increased the dressing, used balsamic vinigar and bottled hot sause VS. using white vinager & red pepper flakes. - 9/22/11

  • I used some frozen green beans with baby carrots for the veggies and it was still good! I can't wait to make this again with some broccoli and cabbage. I had to change a few things in the dressing, (ginger powder for fresh and ground red pepper for the flakes) but it was still amazing. - 7/5/11

  • Forgot the sesame oil and seeds, but was still really tasty! Think next time I may used broccoli and green beans. Yummy and pretty easy! BTW I used 1/2 a box of spaghetti noodles to make 1 lb. - 10/5/10

  • I liked this, but was hoping it would have a more peanut taste. I made it according to the directions. If I make it again, I will add more peanut butter and use rice wine vinegar. Would also be good with more veggies and shrimp. - 4/28/10

  • This was wonderful! I couldn't even wait for it to be cooled to eat it. A little bit spicy, but I loved the combo of the soy sauce and peanut butter. Comes together quickly too. - 1/9/10

  • Oh this is just plain yummy! Next time I might add some more veggies to it, but it's still awesome the way it is. I can't wait for a potluck. I'll bring this and be a hero amongst my friends! - 11/10/09

  • Ooooo... SO very delish! I made some for a Saturday night potluck. Not a lot of peanut fans in the crowd, so lucky me... I got to bring some leftovers home to enjoy this week. (Those that tried it, loved it, though.) I used the Naturally More peanut butter brand for a healthier dish. - 7/19/09
