I added 1 tsp each minced garlic and crushed red pepper with the veggies, and subbed the soy sauce with a mix of agave nectar, salt, and rice vinegar. This was my first time cooking with gluten-free pasta -- which is very sticky and mushy. So I won't rate this recipe because I might have liked it better with wheat pasta. The crushed red pepper, I think, is a must. I can't imagine the flavor being very interesting without it.

I added hoisen, garlic, ginger, red pepper and shrimp to kick up. Good base to start. Thanks.

Add another fan to your list! Wonderful dish; easy to make and lots of variations open to it. After reading other reviews; I made ours with 3 cups cabbage and omitted the regular oil and used 2 Tbls or sesame oil. Ran out of soy sauce with earlier recipe so substituted teriyaki and added a dash of salt to cut the sweetness. Also added 3 Tbls. oyster sauce. Could see adding mushrooms, fried eggs, water chestnuts.. great recipe; thanks papergoddess for sharing!

I have to confess that I did add a little bit of sugar to sweeten this up, but it was just amazing! I can see adding lots of different things, even though it is very good just as written. My daughter just loved it, and so did I. Definite repeater!

This was so good and a great way to use a variety of vegetables. I used dark sesame oil and did not use the chicken or bean sprouts. I think it would be ok to add a bit more cabbage if I leave those things out without sacrificing flavor. I love this recipe!

This turned out fairly well. I used regular cabbage, and more than 2 cups (just to use the whole smallish head). I used cooking spray rather than oil (but did keep the sesame oil). I used a bit more green onion than called for, and also 4-5 cloves of garlic. I used soba noodles, which I unfortunately didn't rinse well enough because they were a bit gummy. I also added sliced water chestnuts rather than bean sprouts, and some cheap frozen flounder ("poached" in the veggies) on top rather than chicken. For additional spice, I used about 1 tsp each Thai red pepper paste and ginger. Thanks!
