I love this cold, sometimes I heat it up in the microwave. A great dish that fits in as a side dish as well as a main course.

I enjoyed these noodles best at room temperature. They are simple to make, yet delicious. I used spaghetti noodles and used the peanut butter. I did add just a little crushed garlic. The fresh scallions are the perfect thing to top these off. It's a nice versatile recipe...... you could add pretty much any vegetable you like, or just enjoy the simplicity of the recipe as it is. Thanx for posting!

Thanks for this recipe. It's easy and tastes awesome. If you like your food a bit more spicy, this is good with some sweet hot chili sauce drizzled on top. You can find it bottled at your local Asian market.

This was ok, but not at all what I was expecting. The sauce was very pasty and a little bland. I think if the tahini/peanut butter was cut back and maybe the oil increased, it would be what I've tasted in the past.
