Very good but if I'm bringing it to work again, I'll use less garlic. I used not as much broth so that it would be drier. Thanks!

YUMMY! We recently moved and I couldn't find my cookbooks. I didn't want to spend a great deal of time in a hot kitchen and was dying for Cold Sesame Noodles. This is very good, very easy and very close to the recipe I was looking for. I used the full 2 tsp. of crushed red pepper because we like everything hot and spicy, but if you don't -- definitely cut the recipe back. I added about 1/2 - 1 tsp. red wine vinegar as that is called for in the original recipe (as well as soy sauce, etc.) and that helped round out the salad quite nicely. I made vegetarian broth in the microwave and added the peanut butter to that before putting it all in the large bowl and had no problem with the peanut butter breaking down. Once you let it sit it becomes less soupy, even with the whole wheat noodles I used. This is an excellent recipe!

My only complaint is that it tasted weird cold. I may try it again, only hot next time. The sauce would be a great cold dressing for a salad.

Very tasty indeed - and spicy. Try going to the local market and picking up some Asian noodles instead of fettucine. Also, the peanut butter can be annoying to mix unless you first microwave it for a short time - then it become soupy and "more liquified" and user-friendly without losing any flavor. Just be sure not to overcook the pb in the microwave; burnt pb stinks!

This is a great dish!! I made it for the staff I work with and everyone enjoyed it! Some extras I added to the salad, for some more veggies, were red and green peper, baby corn, and mushrooms. It was a hit!
