Delicious! I only used 8 oz. of whole wheat pasta and doubled the napa cabbage amount (trying to cut down on carbs) and I used about 3/4 teaspoon hot pepper flakes - it was spicy enough for our tastes. Everything else I left according to the recipe and it turned out great. Thanks for posting!
Absolutely incredible!! I can't recommend this recipe enough. Has a nice bite to it.
This was outstanding! Made without the meat as a side dish and it's my new favorite pasta salad!
