Asian Spaghetti

We love this recipe with its bright, crisp-tender snow peas and carrots, but you could easily substitute any veggies you have on hand. —Anne Smithson, Cary, North Carolina

    I made this as is pretty much except I used sugar snap peas because that's what I had. I also reduced the cayenne for the kids but I'm sure I would have preferred the full amount of cayenne. My daughter and I both ate it with some sweet chili sauce on the side and it was great. My son went back for seconds.

    Because of the shortages due to the virus, I just used the pasta I had in my cabinet which was 1/3 package of egg noodles and some small shells. I had to leave out the cayenne pepper because daughter can not do heat very well. I also added shredded chicken to make it a 1 pot meal. To the sauce I also added about 1/2 cup of Asian Sesame Toasted Dressing. Really added to the taste of this dish. Very colorful!

    Excellent recipe, very versatile, can use whatever veggies your family prefers. I add cubed cooked chicken and double the sauce to make this a main dish.

    This is a great recipe. You can use just about any veggies you have on hand. My picky 6 and 6 year olds ask for it.

    A deliciously different meatless Friday supper for our family! Occasionally I add surimi--imitation crab--to give it some protein. But, even my "I hate vegetables!" hubby enjoys this dish! Because we like the flavor of garlic, I do add two cloves of garlic. But, otherwise, we enjoy it as printed!

    Made this exactly as written and was surprised how good it was! Fast, and easy wiith just the right amount of heat. Go easy with the sesame seeds so as not to overpower the other flavors. Wife said I HAVE to make this often!
