Very nutritious and delicious! My kids love this recipe. You can use Udon or Rice noodles....but I just use spaghetti. Use vegetable broth for a vegetarian option. Also delicious with grilled shrimp or chicken for a heartier pasta. I have found the new Barilla Plus Spaghetti is GREAT in this. It has a hearty flavor that really compliments the dish.

This was so delicious! I didn't have chili paste or anything remotely similar, so we skipped it. I used quinoa spaghetti pasta, since we are gluten free. I doubled the sauce and added two cut up sauteed chicken breasts. Came out great!

Very helpful recipe. I was looking for a starting point, so I did make some changes: I used 3/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk (not the can, but the stuff that's in a carton like rice milk), added a little lime juice, left out a T of soy sauce and added a T of peanut butter. I served it with sesame seeds as another reviewer suggested. I also added fried tofu (recipe #69191) and some lightly pan fried broccoli and red pepper.

Lots of flavor and very simple to make. The chili sauce was a MUST. It really made the dish for me. I’m always looking to add more veggies to my diet, so I put julienne carrots and cucumbers on top (uncooked). They added a lot of texture and complimented the spice from the chili sauce. Next time I want to try adding toasted sesame seeds to the top as well. I also used whole wheat pasta for extra nutrition. This time I used creamy peanut butter. Next time I might try crunchy and omit the chopped peanuts--just for the fun of it. Thanks!
