I tried several differed cold sesame noodle recipes searching for the best and I believe I found it with this one. I have made it several times and is perfect with Olympic Seoul Chicken one of my top 10 and most requested meals

This was pretty good. 4oz of noodles isn't nearly enough for the amount of sauce it makes, I ended up making another 4oz for a total of 8oz. Also I thought it needed added salt and a little bit of lime to give it some sort of kick. Otherwise, it was just a little to bland for my tastes.

The sauce was quite flavorful but a little heavy. I didn't think such a little amount of sauce would be able to cover all the soba. But it was still excellent nonetheless!

I have been searching for a good, basic peanut noodle recipe and this is definately it! I've been using Barilla's whole grain spaghetti to boost nutrition. I don't like peppers that much, so instead I've been shredding napa cabbage and adding it to the pasta for the last two minutes to soften a little. I like to add the carrots raw, to add crunch, and if I have them, I also add scallions. Delicious!

I really liked this. I would make this 4 stars if my husband didn't tell me to never make this again. He hated it. He hated the texture etc. I thought it was much better when I first made it and it was a little warm than after it sat in the fridge. I didn't use the peppers or carrots. I added cole slaw mix and a can each of baby corn, water chest nuts and bamboo shoots. I think if I make this again (for myself not DH) I won't add the nuts. Oh, and I couldn't find the noodles so I used spaghetti. Thanks for posting, even tho it wasn't a hit with everyone.

I was really impressed with this recipe. To make it vegan, I substituted maple syrup for honey and it worked really well. I think cabbage would be a good ingredient to add. Thanks!

Great Recipe! I did tweak it a bit also decreasing the amount of peanut butter to 1 tablespoon and increasing the rice vinegar to 2 Tablespoons. I also added a few dashes of Tabasco. I used it as a bed for some grilled salmon and roasted asparagus. I will definitely make this recipe again!

EXCELLENT. I left out the red pepper flakes so my daughter could eat it and even my husband, who likes spicy foods, really enjoyed the recipe. Excellent, really, I can't say it enough.
