    Chef Kate's Note:

    A lovely side dish, or, with the addition of some shrimps or Chinese roast pork slices, a great lunch. You'll have some extra dressing--but it won't go to waste.

      I am updating this review.This recipe was outside my normal recipe choices, and I was looking forward to making it. I did not warn DH in advance that it was a little has the kind of heat that sneaks up on you. He took several bites before the spice As written in the recipe intro, the recipe will make more chili-orange sauce than needed. It makes a LOT of extra. Recipe makes almost a quart of sauce, and only about 1/4 cup is needed for the noodles. So, if you were to make this, you could cut way back on the sauce and still have plenty. My update: I keep all my extra sauce in the fridge, and can very quickly put this dish together for lunch, which I do quite regularly....that certainly was a lot of sauce...still working my way through it all. The more times I eat this, the more I like it!

      I scaled this recpe down to two servings, and scaled the dressing/sauce even further (using 1/4 cup or the chili oil, soy sauce and vinegar each, 1/4 cup sugar and the zest of 1 orange). Instead of bean sprouts, I used finely-julienned cucumber. Loved the spicy-zesty-freshness of simple to put together recipe.

      The sauce is *outstanding* -- although you do have to be a bit careful, even if you like hot food like we do. I think I'll play with the ingredients a little next time: cut down on the noodles and add more veggies to make it more of a balanced meal. By the way, we added some store-bought cooked shrimp which made for a delicious supper! Thanks for posting.
