Overall, this recipe is tasty, but the best part about it is the sauce because it's so versatile. You can easily mix up the sauce, cook vegetables of your choice, and toss it in to thicken (I did that today). I could take or leave the soba noodle part of the recipe. It was good, but you can just as easily use rice if you can't find the noodles. The flavor only gets better as it sits.
