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.

My elderly mother, who is a diabetic, absolutely loves this dish. I make it with soba noodles whenever I can. Very versatile-can use different veggies. We like to add bean sprouts.

I didn't like this. at all. The flavor was "meh" at best. I think the number one bad idea was whole spaghetti. It just made the whole thing inauthentic. I served it. The kids and hubby picked at it. I threw it out.

I thought this was great and so quick and easy to make! I added a bunch of blanched matchstick carrots, omitted the sesame seeds and warmed everything slightly in a pan since it was a cold day. Also squeezed fresh limes over to taste and used a sprinkling of ground red pepper since I didn't have crushed. Love the sesame/ lime flavor!

I make this recipe over and over again, and have shared it with friends and family. I add shredded carrot, cabbage, broccoli, what ever I have on hand in the refrigerator and sometimes shrimp. Be sure to use the "lite" soy sauce - regular is too salty.
