"Really a great recipe. I used fresh mushrooms and gluten free spaghetti (and only about 3 oz.), both dh & I really enjoyed this and he's not a fan of Chinese (can I say that?) cuisine. I really liked a little extra splash of soy sauce on individual servings. Thanks Joan!"

"I made this last night. Not normally a fan of chinese food - prefer Thai or Indian. But this is really pretty good. I have lots left over so perfect for lunches or dinner later this week."

"This was very good and quite easy to prepare. Tired of the same old Orange chicken and basic stir fry so I was really pleased with this recipe. I didn't find oyster sauce at the market I shop so used Hoisin sauce instead and it came out great! Wonderful flavor."

"This is one of my very favorite recipes! I have made it many, many times and everyone I've served it to has loved it, too. I keep cans of bean sprouts on hand just for this recipe, in case I can't get to a store. I do add more broccoli (preferably from fresh) than the recipe calls for because I like broccoli, but the taste is great anyway. Joan is right: it is at Least as good as any restaurant variation ever. Thanks!"
