Reviews for Indonesian Pasta
"I love this recipe. I had lost it and now I have found it and I am so excited~ I add pan seared steak to this recipe and sugar snap peas. I cook it all in sesame oil."
"Excellent, light tasting dinner with just the right amount of heat."
"Excellent recipe! My husband & I add a whole sweet red pepper (instead of a half) and pine nuts to this recipe. We keep a jar of chopped jalapeno peppers "on hand" and use 2 heaping TB in this recipe."
"Made this for dinner tonight (for a picky eater for a hubby) and it was pretty tasty but a tad too spicy. I would cut back a bit on the jalapeno and add a little olive oil when tossing it all together. Next time we thought it would be good too with chicken pieces in there. Will make it again."
"My husband and I love this dish! It is so tasty. We add scallops, shrimp or salmon pieces. A lot of ingredients but definitely well worth it."
