Wow - this is fantastic. It's great just as the recipe is, though I used 1/2 pound of noodles and it was just enough sauce. I used a little extra cayenne, I added about 1 T honey instead of the sugar and the result was sweet and spicy, just like I like it. I used the juice of half a lime, as some reviewers suggested, but I think it was fine without it. I did stir in 2 thinly-sliced scallions, some fresh cilantro (because I had some on hand) and some toasted sesame seeds. I garnished it with some crushed peanuts. Beautiful!

This was a really yummy recipe!! I added broccoli and peas to it as well as chicken that I had marinated in soy sauce and some other things. It stretched the recipe to 8 servings and made it healthier, and it was still delicious! Thank you!!

Great stuff. I've a few additions tho. I I use a mix of white, brown, and green Japanese noodles. I like them better and they add color. I double the sauce and use a 50/50 mix of hot sesame and regular sesame oil. And then add some chopped peanuts and/or toasted seasame seeds and/ot green onion for some variety.

Really nice basic recipe. I made this really just to try the sauce. I knew I would want to add lots of veggies tot he noodles and it turned out great. I added grated zucchini and carrot, chopped red and green pepper, broccoli and some sliced green onion. Super simple quick meal. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

I enjoyed the flavor of the peanut sauce and wished I had used linguine instead of soba noodles! Will try this again! Thanks

I've tried several similar recipes, but I think that this is my favorite. Added a little extra cayenne, some vegetables, and a few extra garnishes. This is a keeper!

I never have peanut oil so I just use safflower oil, and I add sliced green onions and a bunch of toasted sesame seeds. I also double the sauce, like people have been saying. These are my favorite, and you are my favorite by extension for exposing me to them. Also, I find the flat linguine noodles kind of weird for this sauce, so I usually use thin whole wheat spaghetti.
