I was really looking forward to this, but maybe I used the wrong kind of peanut butter? I used Wegman's brand natural creamy peanut butter. All of my proportions were right, but the sauce was bland. It has a peanut buttery taste but I didn't like the texture (which was all from the peanut butter). Although it had a nice kick to it from the chili sauce, the garlic and soy were really muted. But I'm a college student and don't cook much, so maybe it's my inexperience. I added some soy sauce to my bowl but I don't think there's much I can do to fix it. I don't think I'll make it again, but if I did, I'd use chunky peanut butter like everyone else said, because I really think there should be something crunchy in it besides the vegetables. Also, Wegman's now sells "Far East Stir Fry" bags of frozen vegetables (broccoli, sugar snap peas, green beans, carrots, celery, onions, red peppers, water chestnuts), and I just threw them in with the boiling pasta for only a few minutes. They were cooked until just a little crunch was left.

If you can't find a bagged vegetable medley for this easy noodle bowl, choose 12 ounces of cut vegetables from your market's salad bar and create your own mix.

This is certainly a recipe we'll have again, because everybody in my family likes it! My 3 and 5-year-old kids are usually pretty picky eaters and don't like the same things, but they both liked this! I left out the chile-garlic sauce because I didn't have any and if I have any 'spice' added, my kids won't eat it. It was very delicious even without it.
Yummy! Delicious, wonderful, outstanding. This dish was quite a treat i loved it yummy yayayayayayayyayayayaya.
Terrific dish, simple and quick. My husband and three kids all loved it - including the picky veggie hater who ate it all because of the sauce. Loved the kick of the Chile-garlic sauce. Loved how easy it was to add the fresh veggies to the pasta water to cook together. I added a honey to the sauce for sweetness, and I garnished with chopped peanuts and scallions - will try it next time using chunky peanut butter (and skip adding chopped peanuts.) Whisking in the hot starchy pasta water to the peanut sauce made it creamy and glossy. I will be cooking this again, and often!
