This was absolutely delicious. I omitted the sugar/sweet&lo and found that the peanut butter provided just the right amount of sweetness. I also added chopped green onions. The sauce is more than enough for the pasta specified. I would suggest just adding the amount of sauce that you like. - 1/20/10
I ate this dish mixed with stir-fry vegetables, I think I'll omit the peanut butter next time. I didn't put as much peanut butter as the recipe called for, however, there was still to much. I think next time I will just omit the peanut butter and sprinkle some diced peanuts. - 1/31/10
