I thought it did not have enough kick in the flavour. Not a fav of mine but like the base recipe.
I liked the underlying flavor, but even with low sodium chicken broth, it was extremely salty :( I liked how easy it was, but it just tastes like noodles in saucy heart attack :(
I made this last night and I thought it was very good. I made a few changes based on personal preference, and what I had on hand. I used ground ginger (fresh would have been better), I added snap peas, carrots, and a whole sliced onion (next time I would add even more veggies), I doubled the sauce, omitted the salt, and added crushed red pepper. We all enjoied this one, and I'll definately make this again!
