Instead of using the 2 tbsp of canola oil I substituted 2 tbsp. of almond butter. I don't eat peanut butter so I use almond butter instead. It gave it more flavor and thickened up the dressing.


This recipe is just excellent, I had my Chinese neighbors over for dinner, they loved it. They also asked for the recipe, I was just amazed, they are Chinese, why would they want the recipe. I guess it's because I
topped it off with Parmesan cheese. Thank you so much, I love all your recipes.


I was really excited to try this recipe, but it did not live up to my expectations. The flavor was rather flat and the textures were just alright. My husband and I served it with salmon and both of us agree that we won't be trying these noodles again.


I have served this numerous times, love the taste, ease of preparation and the flexibility. I have added edamame, carrots, whatever is in the fridge, so to speak. Everyone to whom I have served this has asked for the recipe.


I liked this recipe but I will make some changes next time. First, I served it warm. That was tasty. The spaghetti was ok, I might use a different pasta or somehow mix it differently next time. The spaghetti kind of rolled altogether and stayed all together, so I thought with different pasta it would look better. I thought the sauce was alot, I will make it but not use as much. I also think that was a lot of sesame seeds as they are expensive, either not needed or use less. I just forgot the crushed red pepper as I did not have any in the house anyway. Lots left over for the next day or two.
