While this is not authenic Asian cuisine, it does have good Asian flavors.

Wow I was looking for a quick dinner and this was the answer! I used egg noodles instead of linguini (to make it even more asian) and canned chicken to make things even easier! I had to readjust a little though; it was coming out too salty (might be good to use light soy sauce next time) so I tried to temper it a bit with a little sugar and water. Overall great flavors!

This was sooo yummy. Was kind of in a food rut and didn't have any good ideas for dinner last night. Zaar and Nurse Di to the rescue. I used shiitake mushrooms and followed the recipe to a tee. My husband and I thought the flavor was dynamic but not overdone. What I mean is you could taste the spices but you didn't have to choke down some water afterward because your mouth was burning. Thank-you for a quick, easy and definintely not boring dinner.

I was pretty certain this would be a good recipe but I love it when something turns out even better than I expect. That is the case with this recipe. Excellent spicy flavor and not too complicated for me to make on a busy week-night. Your description is very accurate, it has good Asian flavors that mingled together quite well. Putting this one in my keeper notebook. Thank-you.
