I've loved this recipe since I found it in the Kraft Food & Family book, but I have found that using regular Italian dressing seems to taste better than the Zesty Italian and sometimes I even add a bit more to get an even balance of flavors. Sometimes I'll add a bit more ginger if I want it to have a little more bite to it. I also double the recipe and use a whole box of pasta to feed my family of five (and so I have leftovers for my husband's lunch). The whole family loves it and it's one of the recipes that is brought up frequently when I ask them what they want for dinner. Thanks for posting!

Super delicious, and very very easy. Only problem is, the recipe doesn't tell how much ginger to use, but step two says to add ginger.

(Thank you to whoever edited to recipe to include the amount of ginger!!)

We really like this. I always add more like 1/2 cup or more teriyaki sauce. Everyone we've served it to has enjoyed it.
