    I made a meal out of this by adding chicken, peas, water chestnuts, peanuts, soy sauce, 1/4 tsp each of red pepper, cayanne pepper and asian five spice. Tastey and delicious!! - 6/2/09

    My picky kids actually ate this! I took out the cayenne as I thought it would be too spicy (and I didn't have any on hand) and added a bit of garlic and it still needed some kick. I also reserved some of the pasta water to add as needed to smooth it back out from the peanut butter clumping up. - 8/5/08

    Fantastic! I didn't have any sesame oil on hand so I went without it. I had some rice wine vinegar that I added instead of cider vinegar. Plus I put in a splash of tamari. I added fresh broccoli to the pasta for the last 2 minutes or so. it was fantastic! Thumbs up from the 3-yr old, too! - 4/7/09

    Read the reviews, so I added soy sauce, garlic, asparagus, and mushrooms (just what I happened to have). I did NOT put in any Cayenne, as I don't do spicy. This was good for my tastes. Not great, but good. I'll make it again with more *oomph* added to it. - 1/2/08

    We enjoyed this dish! I added red peppers, water chestnuts and broccoli to get in some extra veggies. A sprinkle of soy sauce was also needed. My husband suggested adding chicken next time. It will definetly be in our monthly menu cycle. Enjoy! - 3/27/07
