This is a great recipe to use as is or to build on. Made this tonight (as written with fettucine) and my two 4 yr old sons approve! I added a photo, didn't have any green onions though. A wonderful, easy-to-make and kid friendly meal!
I've had this recipe printed and saved for some time now and finally made it last night. I have a very picky 7 year old who likes peanut butter and this was a great way to hide whole wheat pasta. I went light on the onion, finely, finely chopped (hidden) and only used .5 tbsp of vinegar concerened that it would be tart. I didn't have lemon juice, so I used lime and I added extra brown sugar. All three of us liked it, picky eatter, hubby and me! Thank you! By the way, I love the name "Grannydragon!"
This recipe has made it into a regular rotation in my family. I made it exactly as written, using egg noodles one time, quinoa noodles another, and spaghetti another. Don't skip the peanuts as garnish--it really makes this dish come together!! Thanks Grannydragon.
