    Yia Yia's Note:

    This is an easy light supper or lunch pasta salad. It's simple to add chicken, bacon or shrimp to make it a little heartier if you like. Thanks to Jackie for submitting this to our new church cookbook.

      This was wonderful! I made it with shrimp and I used broccoli instead of zucchini. I also didn't have any spaghetti noodles on hand, so I used bow-tie pasta -- not traditionally Asian, but it still tasted great! Next time I will double the sauce because after a few hours in the refrigerator the pasta had soaked up all the sauce.

      This is so good. I made this a few times already. I usually make it with buckwheat noodles instead of pasta noodles without meat. Today I made it with shredded leftover turkey meat from Thanksgiving. So good. I'll make with fried tofu next time.

      I made this recipe for a Memorial Day BBQ. I did not add any chicken or shrimp. I mixed up all the salad ingredients the day prior and pre-made the dressing. I poured the dressing over the noodles/veggies about 3 hours before the party along with adding the cilantro and cashews. By the time we ate the salad it was on the dry side. The spaghetti absorbed much of the dressing. It didn't have much flavor. I would try it again , perhaps, and put 1/2 of the dressing in and let it sit for a while, then add remaining dressing just prior to serving. Very fresh tasting salad, but bland. Dressing needs a little something.. will have to work on it.
