There is an error in the recipe compared to Pioneer Woman's website. She indicates a dark, or Chinese or Asian sesame seed oil which is not the same as 'pure sesame oil". It's a much more highly flavored oil, and if you make the recipe without it you get such a difference. <br/>I made this recipe 1/2 a dozen times for my large family, doubling it. We love the recipe as is, with the exception of eliminating the chili peppers, because my children are young. It gets 5* here! To make it a main dish, we add steamed broccoli and leftover sliced grilled chicken breast.
Myself and my 14 year old son love these noodles. I use buckwheat asian noodles. Instead of canola oil, I use extra virgin olive oil. I add julienned carrots, broccoli, and marinated chicken in an asian marinade consisting of: soy sauce, garlic, honey, ginger, & sesame oil. I always double the noodles and still I never seem to make enough before my son devours it. Definitely a favorite.

Great recipe - even with me making a lot of substitutions! * I used quinoa pasta noodles instead of regular asian style noodles. (8oz in the package instead of 12) * I didn't have rice vinegar so used balsamic instead. * I also didn't have chile oil so used 1/2 teaspoon of chile flakes. * I chose to use agave nectar instead of sugar. It turned out very well. I then tossed the noodles with fresh raw spinach and tomatoes. Made a great dish. Both my husband and I loved it!
