Reviews for Asian Pork Linguine
"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."
"This was quite tasty. I used fresh ginger and added green beans from our garden. Next time I would definitely add in more veggies as there was plenty of sauce to go around."
"I'm so excited to have come across this recipe"
"My family loved the mix of flavors, especially when using fresh ginger and garlic."
"I used rice noodles instead of linguine....and it was simply amazing."
"I used reduced fat crunchy peanut butter and topped the dish with a few peanuts...very tasty"
"This is one of my favorite new recipes. Will making it often."
"Very satisfying -- rich tasting, mild Thai peanut flavor, good comfort food."
