We really enjoyed the array of vegetables in this dish, and served it with (Kung Pao Shrimp). The sauce was nicely spicy and very flavorful although I found it to be a bit too watery which washed some of the sauce flavor off of the veggies. Next time I would not add those 2 tbsp. water the recipe calls for. Also I did use Splenda in this instead of sugar, and might cut that back to 1 teaspoon as I like the sauce not too sweet. But thanks for posting, we did enjoy this quite a bit and made this for Cookbooks Tag. ~Sue
