This was OK for us. I doubled the recipe for my family put used a lot more chicken broth and soy sauce then soy sauce because the pasta was really dry. We thought it was a bit salty though. I also a whole can of peas and carrots because a few tablespoons didn't seem like enough. I would also omit the egg if I made it again.
Made this for hubby tonight; he loved it and wants to keep it for sure!! I had no leftovers so I made everything right there & then. I used 2 oz whole wheat spaghetti, diced mushrooms & broccoli, and Eggbeaters. I doubled up on the soy sauce & added some more chicken broth so it wouldn't get too dry as it heated up on the stove. It was a fast & pretty healthy meal! Thank you so much!
I ended up leaving the eggs out (personal preference) but this is really tasty. It makes for a better late-night snack then something like icecream because it includes veggies, and is a great way to use up random food you have sitting around in your fridge. Thanks for the good idea, I'll probably play with variations on this quite a bit.
