I love pasta! For a quick meateaters main dish, just add leftover chopped cooked chicken or beef. This is so good! Cook time doesn't include time for cooking pasta.

This pasta dish is an example of a wonderful use of interesting seasonings. I particularly loved the ginger and red pepper flakes. Yes, I have to say it--easy as 123 (ha-ha). Couldn't resist. Thanks Sharon, for this dazzling meatless entree.

I debated whether to rate it or not, since I changed it quite a bit, but my DH and I both thought it was great. I didn't have sesame oil, so I shook in some sesame seeds. I forgot the ginger and didn't add the (hot) pepper bcz of kids. I added some broccoli and cabbage and didn't use the Parmesan cheese. I made some Polish sausage to go alongside of it and the meal was wonderful! Most of my kids ate it without complaining (that's a good thing around here!:) I think adding the 1 1/2 T sesame oil would have been overkill for us. So next time, I'll use the 1 tsp but not the 1 1/2 Tbs.

Thanks Sharon for another wonderful vegetarian meal. Made this along side of your VaVoon Veggie Burgers recipe #38532 along with some garlic bread and steamed green beans. What a meal! The only changes I made to this recipe was to leave off the cilantro, and use homemade breadcrumbs.
