This is probably the worst recipe I have made from this site. I had high hopes, as most things from this site have turned out well. But this was barely edible, and I threw out the copious amount of leftovers because we had no desire to eat it again. The flavors were strange and didn't actually have much taste. The use of pasta was weird in this too, maybe rice noodles would have been better? Either way, we won't be making this again. There are too many other great recipes here to try to waste time trying to fix this one.
