MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 17, 2013

I have made this recipe many times since finding it! It's a quick and easy meal that is very tasty. I like a lot of veggies in my dishes so I also add fresh broccoli and califlower to it. If I am in a hurry I add frozen stir-fry veggies. Great for leftovers too!

I doubled up on the sauce except for the peanut butter. This is a great recipe. I made it twice in one week.
