Great blend of flavors. I made this just as written, but I used 16 oz of linguine. Makes a nice main dish or side dish. The parmesan cheese is a nice touch, but if you don't have any, it's still great without it. Thanx for posting this recipe; it's a keeper!

This was just the recipe I was looking for- I used a combo of crystalized ginger and powder and ommitted the pepper and it turned out fine :-D Will totally make again
