It's hard to believe that something that comes together this easily could be tasty and lower in fat. This dish is pretty zippy, but if you like your stir-fries extra spicy, increase the red pepper flakes a bit. -Jenna Noel of Glendale, Arizona

"Very good nice and light for the new year. Cooked the snow peas with the pasta for the last minute of cooking time. Stir fried the carrots and green onions only 2 minutes the stated time would be too long. Served with bottled teriyaki and hot sauce on the side for those that wanted more of either flavor. The Almond Good Luck cake on this site is a great dessert for this meal!"

"Leave out the vinegar and it would be closer to a five star."

"Pretty good-tasted like take out. I thought it needed more sauce, though-next time I'd double the vinegar sauce."

"Our whole family loved it. Timing is important as the pea pods and carrots are easily over-cooked. It's great as a leftover too."
