"A little tame on the flavor side, but that is good for my husband who has a sensitive stomach. Overall was very good."

"I just love this recipe. I have added some red onion to it also. Sometimes I use the noodles from Ramen noodle soup and, if I have all the ingredients on hand, I can have dinner on the table in 15 minutes from the time I walk in the door after work. The sesame oil gives lots of flavor."
