I made several on-hand substitutions on this recipe and it still turned out great. I used broccoli, onions, garlic, and frozen whole green beans for the veggie mix; I used beef stock in place of the vegetable stock; and had no sake or rice wine vinegar so I left it out completely. I reduced the brown sugar to 2T and the honey to 1T based on previous reviews, but next time I will probably try it with the full amount called for because the sweetness didn't really come through. I was unsure on the amount of spaghetti, as a standard package is actually 16 oz (I have never seen an 8 oz package?) I ended up boiling the whole 16 oz and used about 3/4 of it just eyeballing it for how much sauce I wanted. I also topped the pasta with thin sliced chicken breast. My whole family enjoyed it, including the 18 month old, 4 year old, and generally carb-averse husband! I was really worried about the beef broth being an issue, but it turned out delicious anyway. I look forward to making it "the real way" one day soon too!
