    This was SO good! I made 1/2 the recipe for 2 of us. For the veggies, I used onion, yellow pepper, garlic, zucchini, snow peas and the mushrooms. I happened to have some Udon noodles, so used them. I also added some soy sauce and sesame oil before serving. Made for your football win.

    After a little tweaking to bolster up the flavor, this was a first class dinner in under 15 minutes. I added lots of garlic while sauteing the other veggies, stirred in some minced cilantro and generously sprinkled on red pepper flakes. My mushrooms did not give up very much liquid so a few dollops of hot pasta water were needed to get a respectable amount of sauce. I halved the recipe, more or less, and the 2 of us polished it all off. Thanks for posting this keeper of a recipe!

    Good, rich flavor. I added some extra water, because DH likes a lot of sauce, and a little garlic. This is very nice for a weekday meal. Thanks for posting!

    wonderful basic recipe! I used hokkien noodles, so I added a bit of extra water to the mix, and a teaspoon of cornflour. would totally tell any new cook to to try this, easy and good! nov 09 aussie swap

    Yum! This was quick, easy and delicious. I used recipe#92803 instead of store-bought. I put the chicken and vegetables on top of the noodles, then added a small handful of diced scallions and a drizzle of sesame oil. Delicious! This was mild, just the way my small children like it. For my own portion, I added a bit of red chili flakes. Thanks for the awesome busy-night meal, Lauralie41!
