Pretty good, with a few changes to add flavor. I added 2 cloves of garlic, 2 tbsp of sugar, and about 1/4 cup of rice vinegar. I also doubled the amount of cayenne pepper in total, substituted scallions for cilantro. Next time I may add some ginger, too. Goes great accompanied with a hot stir fry.

Sorry didn't care for this at all and will never make again. It was spicy but that is all. The flavors never seemed to meld together even overnight.

We have this at least once a month. It's so easy to play around with...adding as you please. I always add in stir-fried chicken and what ever veggies I have stir-fried along side like cabbage and cauliflower. Just toss it all together and season. I usually toss the noodles with garlic oil (garlic crushed with a motar and pestel and fried in oil till golden) before I add other ingredients. My hubby is not a fan of sesame oil, so I leave that out. Use your imagination with this. Thanks Ashley.

This did start out as a bland pasta dish. I added feta cheese and it perked up and was great! Definately will be on my favorite list.

We liked this in our house. I used short curly noodles instead of speghetti and it was much easier to eat.

The dish is very simple and tasty, and can be customized with anything you have on-hand for variety. I used the above recipe, and added a little extra soy sauce, some halved grape tomatoes, and some sliced green onions, and I squeezed in a lime for a little extra flavor.

A little bland. I used rice noodles instead of spaghetti to make it a little more authentic asian, and tried adding more cayenne pepper to add more flavor, but it just made my mouth burn without adding any flavor.

I found it to be quite bland. I added a few extra dashes of soy sauce than what it said in the recipe and it was still tasteless.
