What a delicious dish! I had tasted a similar recipe in a favorite restaurant and have been hoping to find a version to make at home for several years. Well - this one was perfect. I loved the taste of the sauce - all those ingredients pack in so much great, unique flavor. I chose to add all of the optional veggies and stirred them right in with the noodles, then waited for this to chill a bit before tasting it and like the previous reviewer, sprinkled sesame seeds on top of the finished product. The recipe makes a lot of extra sauce - I found that I only needed about 1 cup (full batch made 2 1/4 cups).
