A recipe that needs a lot of "tweaking"

I tried this recipe based on the number of stars from previous reviews. I did not read the reviews one by one. You will find that the most common comment was I used this instead of that and it was good! In my opinion, the recipe requires to much tweaking to taste good. I'm sorry but the recipe on it's own does not taste good.

Question about soy sauce amount

What is the ACTUAL amount of soy sauce in the recipe? 1/2 cup is surely a mistake for only a pound of pasta. For 8 servings the sodium figures out to about 2000mg/serving, and you only list 500mg, so this must be about 4X too much soy sauce? And yes, I looked at a "Low Sodium" soy sauce bottle to make my calculations.

The recipe calls for half a

The recipe calls for half a cup of soy sauce. Half a cup=8 tablespoons. A serving of soy sauce is 1 tablespoon. So in this recipe there are 8 servings of soy sauce. The noodles are said to make 8 servings, the same number as tablespoons of soy sauce. In other words, each serving of sesame noodles will have one tablespoon of soy sauce, exactly the serving size listed on the bottle. So whatever the sodium count for one serving is on your soy sauce bottle, that's the sodium count for the serving of sesame noodles.

Eating Well lists its nutrition facts as per serving, not per recipe.

Has great potential

I tried this tonight and felt it was too heavy on the soy sauce. I think all of the ingredients go together very well but the soy sauce overpowered the taste of the other ingredients. I had to drizzle it with honey to tone down the soy sauce. Next time I make this I will cut the soy sauce in ahalf.

Great indredients to mix together.

Tasty Noodles with a bite

This dish was good. I wasn't really clear on if it was meant to be served hot or cold so I went with slightly warm. I sauteed the veggies a couple minutes ( since that wasn't mentioned either) and added shredded carrot and broccoli to make it a little more hearty and healthy.

Great but very spicy

I really liked this recipe. I changed it up a bit by adding 1 tablespoon lime juice and 1 tablespoon rice vinegar in place of the 2 tablespoons of rice-wine vinegar (which I didn't have), frying up 2 cloves of garlic until fragrant then adding the veggies in a little sesame oil and soy sauce and frying until tender and serving everything warm. It turned out very yummy but *very* spicy. I love spicy but this was a bit too much for even me. I would at least half the amount of crushed red pepper if you're not into very spicy food.
