    I felt this noodle dish was a little plain in flavor but it made a good side dish. I could not find udon noodles so I substituted with thin spaghetti. I also went easy on the oil because it seemed like a lot for the amount of noodles I made. Overall it's a nice simple dish.

    Super easy and very tasty! I made this as listed, using linguine. I think I would cut back on the oil next time but I did love the crispy texture of the noodles. I enjoyed this with Recipe #140268. Made for my teammate for ZWT6. Thanks LoriInIndiana! :)

    Darn I hate eating dinner with a grown man making yum, yum noises! lol. Seriously I really liked them and would go a 4 1/2. DH says 6 so 5 it is! It couldn't be more simple to put together and had a great taste. I made this as a side for recipe #22613 and it complemented the dish perfectly. I stuck to the recipe but added some sliced green onions because I love them and sprinkled toasted sesame seeds on top just 'for pretty'. Thanks so much for posting. Made for ZWT6 on behalf of the Looney Spoon Phoodies :)

    This was quick and easy to put together and a great side dish served with Recipe #205748. Thanks for sharing Lori! Made and enjoyed for PAC Spring 09.

    Yummy! What an excellent side dish, it was on the table in less then 10 mins. I used microwavable Singapore noodles to separate the noodles but otherwise kept to the recipe. The flavours combined very well together. Will be making this gain with fresh udon noodles. Thank you LoriInIndiana - *Made for Zaar World Tour 4*


Hey there! I am the wife of my dh, Steve, to whom I've been married a very short 12yrs. I am also the SAHM of three boys (11yo and 4yo at home, 23yo on his own). My middle insists that you know he is #57 in the picture, the first player facing you. LOL I graduated from Ball State University with a BS in Pre-Professional Psychology, which I get use of here at home frequently. I enjoy entering local bakeoffs and contests, creating handmade cards and am active in my local MOPS group. I have a extensive collection of cookbooks, but have found that Zaar has taken care of my appetite for any hands on cookbooks. I just love to bake, especially for the high school football team here during the fall. It is my favorite time of the year......sweaters, bonfires, leaves, pumpkins, caramel apples, football, all the stuff about fall is fun! Thanks for checking out my "about me" page and I look forward to seeing you around on the boards. <a href=""><img border="0" src="" alt="web site hit tracking"></a><a href="">Staples Office</a> <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="">
