Once I discovered brown rice pasta, I never looked back. Tossed with ginger, bright veggies and rotisserie chicken, it tastes like a deconstructed egg roll! —Tiffany Ihle, Bronx, NY

"Love all the good-for-you veggies in this recipe. My gang does not care for ginger so left that out. I didn't have coconut oil so used olive oil. Added some fresh chopped tomatoes and tossed with bacon-infused olive oil. It was a big hit!!"

"This was very good. My son who does not like brussels sprouts, took seconds. I cut the recipe in half as there are only 3 of us. Very colorful and absolutely delicious."
