"The recipe written as is left something to desire. It was ok, but we found it to be dry."

"We had this for dinner tonight. Was so good. I did use rice noodles instead of pasta and used chicken breast instead of ground meat.. I also doubled the sauce as other suggested. Used sambal oelek instead of sriracha sauce but did not double this in sauce. Gave the dish a nice background heat. The whole family enjoyed will absolutely make again!"

"I made this tonight for dinner. It is definitely a keeper. I too added the sweet chile sauce and the red pepper flakes. I like mine more spicy than my husband, so I added some bottled peanut sauce. It was just perfect. I also added zucchini and yellow squash and diced the chicken breast. I probably used 1/2 the amount of spaghetti called for. It was just perfect and we might have enough for leftovers."

"Very delicious! I did make a couple changes, though. I used a sweet chili sauce instead of hot sauce (just my preference.) I also doubled the amount of chili sauce and soy sauce, since it was a tad dry. In place of the ground turkey, I used shredded turkey breast meat from a precooked rotisserie chicken."

"There was something off about the sauce. I think it may have been the chicken broth. I ended up keeping the other elements of the recipe and replacing the sauce with another I found."
