This was good...I made about 3/4 of the pasta (see the other comment below that said it was too really is. I made all of it and eyeballed what was in the pan that I had to add the noodles to and thought hmm...way too much). I used about double the soy sauce and should have quadrupled it but...yeah, it was good. It is oddly a lot of work the was yummy. I added shiitake mushrooms and onions and grilled them with the chicken. Hubby loved it too.
