    Sharon123's Note:

    I got this recipe from Newman's Own Cookbook. Tofu is so good in soy sauce. This is an excellent dish! Update: Due to reviews, please use a low sodium soy sauce, so it won't be too salty!

      I felt like the sauce was a little bit runny, and lacking flavor. It was salty. I ended up adding some crushed red pepper and some honey to the sauce. I liked the fried noodles, though!

      Note to reduce the amount of salt, use a low sodium soy sauce or Braggs liquid Aminos [this is a very very low sodium soy sauce]

      I really wanted to love this recipe. The tofu was just too salty from the soy sauce, almost to the point of being inedible. The veggies and noodles tasted okay. I marinated for four hours and braised for one hour. The presentation was lovely but the flavor...not so much.
