Quite tasty, but needed some more veggies and crushed cashews.
I made this as a make-ahead set of healthy freezer lunches for work. I modified it by using shirataki noodles instead of linguini and PB2 peanut butter instead of low-fat peanut butter and knocked 100 calories off. Have to disagree with previous posters about not having enough sauce. There was plenty to coat the dish.
I made this with chicken. I agree with previous writer. Not enough sauce so I added a bit more water which diluted the sauce and made it a bit bland. Would make again but increase amounts of ginger, soy, peanut butter etc to give it proper taste.
I will make this again, but double the sauce ingredients, with the noodles, there wasn't enough sauce to coat everything. Used a small garlic clove, instead of powder and fresh ginger. Also it needs a little heat, so I will stir fry a couple of dried red peppers until blackened, then remove from the oil, before cooking the pork. This would be good with chicken as well, maybe even shrimp.
