    This was very good, and I will make it again. I added a cup of chopped celery and a can of sliced water chestnuts for added crunch. I love spinach and is one of the reasons I chose this particular recipe. For those that don't like spinach, it could be omitted without jeopardizing the outcome - so don't let that keep you from trying it. My husband prefers rice to noodles, so I made rice for him but I loved it over the vermicelli. I will make this again.

    Very good. I did add a rib of celery, 2 green onions and a bag of deluxe stir-fry. Will make again!

    Yummy marinade and sauce. The sesame oil made the kitchen smell so good! I made it with sauted celery, red bell pepper, and green onion instead of the spinach. We served it on leftover spaghetti and rice (eater's pick). We thought it was better over rice.

    This was a great recipe, especially with a few additions. We sauted in mushrooms, carrots & celery to bump up the veggies. There was plenty of sauce to cover the added ingredients. We'll be making this again.
