Good noodles that are a bit different from our usual. I liked trying this dish since it used a lot of ingredients I haven't previously used. Even though I skipped the horseradish this dish still had a very distinctive flavor. However, although not the chief's fault, I wish the nutrition analysis was more complete on this recipe, because I think this dish is very low in calories and very high in nutrituion value along with being fairly inexpensive. Thanks for sharing!
