    A delicious dinner that was on the table in a flash. The recipe was reduced to 2 servings, using a little more snap peas than called for and probably reducing the amount of peanuts by about half. It produced very generous servings. Good luck in the contest.

    Great recipe and the meal came together very quickly. I really enjoyed the sauce. I've cooked this twice now. Once using the ramen as stated. The 2nd time I used rice noodles in place of the ramen for a gluten-free meal. Both great. Good luck in the contest

    Wow! When you said spicy, you were not kidding! I really liked this dish, but I thought that the taste of the sesame oil got lost somewhere. I will make this again, but I'll cut back on the sambal oelek, just to cut the spice back a little. I'm looking forward to trying again with different vegetables, as well. Thanks for posting a great recipe.

    This was absolutely awesome. Everyone LOVED it and I will most definitely make this again. It's a true "Dining on a $" recipe because any veggies will do and it's a great way to use them up. For those of you that must eat gluten-free, this works great using GF spaghetti broken up in 2-inch pieces. Good Luck!!

    If I could award 10 stars to this sauce I would. I reduced this by half and it made plenty for the two of us for lunch. It is full of noodles and veggies. I used snow peas and red pepper strips to replace two in the recipe the first time I made it, but really almost anything on hand could be utilized. I LOVED, LOVED the sauce! It is everything described..... spicy, sweet, sassy, and EASY! I will save this recipe to use that yummy sauce over & over. The sauce elevates ramen to a new level. I have made this recipe several times since discovering it & it is in my keeper file. Good luck in the contest!
