I seem to be the odd ball out, but I had many problems with this dish. First of all we used a half pound of uncooked noodles. I found we needed to use almost 3x the amount of water. Taste was way too mild, so we added more soy sauce, more sesame oil and some hot oil.

We have made this a few times since the magazine came out. We really like it, but add a shredded carrot and about a cup of shredded green cabbage with the green onions in the first step.

My family absolutely loves pork and pasta and they think this dish is a keeper. I agree, this is a recipe I want.
