"A deliciously different meatless Friday supper for our family! Occasionally I add surimi--imitation crab--to give it some protein. But, even my "I hate vegetables!" hubby enjoys this dish! Because we like the flavor of garlic, I do add two cloves of garlic. But, otherwise, we enjoy it as printed!"

"Made this exactly as written and was surprised how good it was! Fast, and easy wiith just the right amount of heat. Go easy with the sesame seeds so as not to overpower the other flavors. Wife said I HAVE to make this often!"

"I used 12 ounces of spaghetti noodles, 10 oz. jarred mushrooms instead of fresh and vidalia onion instead of green onions, added broccoli, celery, yellow & green peppers and doubled the sauce ingredients; forgot to add the sesame seeds. Loved the flavor, though next time I might go lighter on the cayenne pepper by just a tad."

"Well, I know I'm in the minority here, but I thought that I'd weigh in with my opinion anyway. I didn't like this dish. I made it pretty much according to the recipe. It wasn't very "saucy." It just tasted like salty noodles. I added some sesame oil and hoisin sauce, which helped give it more flavor, but it still wasn't a great dish. My husband (from Vietnam) didn't like it either."
