I usually do not like recipes like this, but I decided to try it anyway and was very glad that I did - it was much better than I could have ever expected, and all three of the kids (6 - 9 yrs) loved it, which almost never happens. I've actually made it twice, once with Japanese stir-fry noodles and and once with spaghetti as in the recipe, and I think I actually prefer the spaghetti in this recipe. Also, the second time I made it with chicken instead by stir frying the chicken and adding the dressing when it was about 1/2 way done and it was very good as well!

Really yummy! We really liked it! I didn't have sugar snap peas (our supermarket was out) and I switched up red peppers for green peppers. It turned out great!

This was a quick and easy weeknight dinner. Added broccoli instead of peas 'cause I didn't have any on hand and it worked well. Great flavor!

Turned out pretty good. Precooked fondue or stir fry beef in the crock-pot. Serve with broccoli or carrots. Used multi grain angel hair spaghetti.

Wow! This was easy and delicious to make. I used whole grain thin spaghetti and also added sliced mushrooms. This will be a regular menu item in our house!

I don't care for asian food and I made this last night for my husband (without the dry roasted p-nuts). Not only did he love it but I thought it was delicous. I brought leftovers into work and everyone is asking me what it is and how to make it.

This was good but needed something to spice it up for my taste. I added a little sherry, garlic, & red pepper flakes to the beef.

Very good flavor. I used fat free Catalina dressing, London broil, reduced fat peanut butter and multi-grain spaghetti noodles.
