This recipe was super quick and easy with lots of healthy ingredients, however it "needed something"- for sure. I added ginger, garlic, thai peanut sauce- anything to add some flavor. It still wasn't enough. I really liked the idea of this recipe so I think I'll try it again with some lean asian seasoned beef (think beef brocolli) and for a vegetarian, teriyaki soaked tofu.

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.
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.
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.
