YUM! Oh man, these noodles were so tasty and flavorful. Much better than what you can get at a Chinese restaurant (and healthier, too, since you can control the amount of oil you use). I did make several alterations to the original recipe: Decreased to 1 tablespoon of peanut oil & 1 tablespoon of sesame oil Doubled cabbage As suggested by another reviewer, used 5 tablespoons of soy sauce and 2 tablespoons of oyster sauce (thanks for the tip) Added 8 oz water chestnuts To spice it up, added 3 cloves of garlic, 1/2 sliced jalepeno and 1 tablespoon of red chili flakes Used whole wheat spaghetti This recipe has so much potential. You can throw in any veggies/meats you have in your refrigerator. I plan on making this often. Thanks for a terrific recipe!

What a wonderful side dish! We substituted snow peas for the bean sprouts and linguini instead of angel hair just as a personal preference. The family just gobbles this up! Thanks for posting.

Good. We used bok choy and chinese noodles. Fried the noodles in a bit of sesame oil after they were boiled to add a bit of flavor. Used canned sprouts, and they were fine but unnecessary. Used a sweet or regular onion instead of the green onion, and added chopped chicken.

This is a nice dish and after a few times I'm sure I'll get my ratios better.

This was delicious! The recipe was easy and quick to make. I made it as written - omitting the optional bean sprouts and using fresh jumbo shrimp instead of the optional chicken. I liked the amounts of cabbage/pasta, not too much of either one. I thought it was very flavorful but added a tablespoon of Toasted sesame oil to give it some depth. I will definitely be making this again. I really like it.

Loved the recipe! I didn't have cabbage but swapped that out with Bok Choy , added some shredded carrots and used fresh bean sprouts. I tasted it after dding 1 Tbsp of sesame oil and decided to go with the higher amount shown. Oh, and I also didn't have angel hair pasta so used spaghetti. I'll make it with the cabbage next time but I think it is very versatile. Thanks for sharing!

This was so good. I did not add the chicken or bean sprouts. I sauted in oil, sesame oil and butter. I also added a touch of oyster sauce. I made enough for 2 meals but ended up eating it all.

Loved this! I cooked my veggies in chicken broth, saving the calories from the oil. I added in some black beans and spicy Chinese black bean garlic paste as well as using tofu noodles. Very good!
