We loved it! Quick and light meal. I read previous reviews so I made sure to buy the Chinese 5 spice without reading the the ingredients in the jar, I could have saved myself buying the spice and just added some cinnamon and more ginger. I also just used almost a full 16 oz bag of coleslaw mix to save time. At my local store they had two different kinds of rice noodles, a thin lo mein looking kind and a rounded thin crispy kind.....I used the crispy kind (LaChoy), added some more crunch, we enjoyed it

Great quick meal! I used a bag of coleslaw mix and omitted the noodles. I cut wontons into quarters and deep fried for about 15-20 seconds in peanut oil and served on the side with Sweet Thai Chili.

Egg roll without the roll! Loved it, wouldn't change a thing but put a jar of Colman's English mustard on the table because I didn't have any Chinese hot mustard. Worked perfectly! East meets West!

This is tasty. The recipe sounded good, but I rarely eat pork. A half pound of cooked, shredded chicken was substituted for the pork. and the serving was topped with some duck sauce. 1 serving was only 2 points (WW). It is tasty and filling. MelanieM

If I could give this recipe more stars I would; this was absolutely delicious. Based on earlier reviews, I added a sprinkling of Chinese five spice powder to punch up the spicy level a bit and it was a good move. Next time, I may get more adventuresome and add a little more. I used bagged shredded cabbage (like for making coleslaw) and it made prep even easier. I had purchased a full pound of ground pork, browned the whole pound, adding a little more sesame oil to compensate for the additional pork, then froze half of the meat so that it's ready to use for the next time I make this dish. It's just my husband and me and so we had enough for a second meal; it was just as tasty the second time. His comment tonight, after the leftovers were gone, was "When can we have this again?"

This was delicious. I did add some red pepper flakes to spice it up. Will definitely make it again. Someone suggested doubling the sauce, but I thought it was sufficient, though I don't know how it will do as leftovers, i.e., if the noodles will soak up the sauce and be somewhat dry the next day.

Made without changes, except adding some chopped sweet red pepper. Really nice for the summer - quick and light!

Everyone loved it. I did double the first four ingredients as another person suggested.I was told to make it again. It is a keeper.

I made this the other night and we(hubby and I) like this a lot. I did make one kinda big change, I used one pkg. of Nissin Chow Mein noodle dinner. Since just two of us I used half of vegs but we like it wetter so used all sauce from recipe and what was in pkg too. I have been working very hard to cut down to just 2 servings find this brand has good sauce that works well with most noodle recipes. I have given it just 4 stars because of how much I had to adjust it. I felt it would have been too bland without that change.
