Very good nice and light for the new year. Cooked the snow peas with the pasta for the last minute of cooking time. Stir fried the carrots and green onions only 2 minutes the stated time would be too long. Served with bottled teriyaki and hot sauce on the side for those that wanted more of either flavor. The Almond Good Luck Cake on this site is a great dessert for this meal!

This is so yummy! I've been making this since this particular issue came out 12 years ago! I wouldn't change a thing. My family loves it.

Leave out the vinegar and it would be closer to a five star.

Pretty good-tasted like take out. I thought it needed more sauce, though-next time I'd double the vinegar sauce.

I loved this recipe. I made extra sauce and added extra red pepper flakes because we love spicy food. Not bland at all. I will definitely make this again.

Our whole family loved it. Timing is important as the pea pods and carrots are easily over-cooked. It's great as a leftover too.
