Shut up! This is so good! So simple! And needs nothing. I read other reviews and considered adding veggies, but didn't, and it is perfect! Maybe a second time I might add something, but it really doesn't need it. Served cold or warm, perfect! (and I don't make a lot of rachel ray's things but thought I'd give it a shot-like it!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I also added a little brown sugar to balance the saltiness. Also used as a base for added veggies like carrots and cukes. Great with sesame marinated tofu baked and added on top. Kids loved it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I really, really love these noodles - they're a perfect foil for so many entrées, especially Asian-inspired ones. I make a mean marinated and grilled flank steak, and I love serving this noodles with it. I usually add a lot more sesame seeds because I love the textural difference between them and the soft noodles; I also love to use black sesame seeds as well as regular, they have a deeper flavor because they're roasted. As other readers have mentioned, it's also nice to throw in some extra veggies, like red peppers, additional scallions, etc. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved this recipe, I used whole wheat thin spaghetti pasta. I added about a teaspoon of lemon juice, a teaspoon of cider vinegar and about 1/2 teaspoon of sugar because it was too salty for me at first. It does get better and the salty taste lessens as it sits, so I would wait next time before I doctor it up. Good leftover too! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good & very easy. I made it without the scallions & half as much vegetable oil & it turned out wonderfully. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yummy!! I can definitely see how you can make this your own dish, but I liked it just as it was!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is so easy & tasty, a crowd pleaser! Substitution note - I ran out of soy sauce today & used 1/2 terriyaki sauce as a substitute, was not as good as when i've made in the past with soy sauce AT ALL - terriyaki sauce is not an adequate substitute! worth it to go to the store ;) item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a great side dish for the tuna but I like having a bit more of a kick so I add in some red pepper flakes. We also like having leftovers of this (great to reheat for lunch) so I triple the recipe for the sauce and use the whole box of spaghetti. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dish had good flavor, but could use something ...maybe next time I will add some veggies? item not reviewed by moderator and published
I really liked this dish. It is very easy to put together and it was delicious. I do feel the the sauce was too think & it was not spicy enough for me. After reviewing other noodle recipes, I added a little more Sesame Oil. I, also, added some hot red pepper flakes and minced garlic. I saw on other recipes, they add cider or rice wine vinegar. I'll try that next time. With the few modifications for "my" particular taste, it is a delicious & easy recipe. Thanks Rach! item not reviewed by moderator and published
