Pretty quick & easy. A good base recipe, but quite bland. Didn't have rice wine (& it's Sunday in MN) so used our favorite non-oaky chardonnay. We're anxious to try again with more spice - this cries out for garlic, maybe red pepper flakes, more sesame seeds, more scallions, less pasta & broken into smaller chunks before cooking. We added shrimp to make it a meal & will spice that more heavily next time also. Probably great with chicken or beef as well.
