Our family of 5 really enjoyed this meal. Very delicious flavors. My kids are ages 10, 8 and 5 and they all enjoyed it. My husband inhaled what was left of it when he got home from work. It was easy to make, super tasty, and light. Thanks so much for this great recipe!

Excellent! My kids loved it. I made the recipe as directed except I substituted ginger for the gingerroot. And I didn't have frozen stir-fry veggies. I used fresh brocoli florets and briefly steamed then in a little bit of water in the wok. The Next time I would double the sauce recipe, though.

Apparently I used the wrong noodles (rice noodles in a can?) because they were mushy after 10min of soaking. I liked the overall taste . . . I'll just used cooked rice on the side next time instead of the noodles.
