  1. Since the temperature is already hitting triple digits here in Las Vegas, I decided to serve this cold as a salad. I made the sauce as written except I added a little crushed ginger from a jar from Trader Joe's. I had 2 different kinds of chile garlic sauce; 1 Chinese and 1 Vietnamese, so - Read more ...
  2. I made this today to go with Michelle's Roast Chicken. I needed something in the same taste-vein. I subbed vegetable oil for the safflower oil, because I didn't have it. I also didn't use chili sauce because my kids have to be able to eat it. They don't like spicy food. Very tasty. I served - Read more ...
  3. This was okay but not one of my favourites of this type of dish I've tried. It was very vinegary and the sesame flavour wasn't very noticeable to me. I added bean sprouts to the garnish as I had some to use up. I may use this recipe again to play with the ingredients/amounts but - Read more ...
  4. This recipe is extremely good. To make this taste authentic use FRESH pasta (I use "Basic Pasta" from this site), if you don't care to make noodles, just buy a package of the fresh linguine if you can, that alone made this dish 50 times better.. I cut the oil in half (sometimes I use - Read more ...
  5. This recipe is so good it should come with a warning: may be addictive! It's sweet and spicy and what's great about it is you can adjust the amount of sweet or spice depending on your tastes. It can be a main dish or side dish depending on what you do with it. You can - Read more ...
  6. This was really good. Instead of just tossing the noodles with the sauce, I let it all simmer/fry on fairly high heat so the noodles could really absorb the flavor and have more of a pan-fried noodle. I also replaced the safflower oil with peanut oil. They were delicious! Next time I think I will - Read more ...
  7. Oh, how I LOVE this recipe! Following other reviews, I add minced fresh ginger & chopped cilantro, and I reduce the oil to 4 T. and sugar to 3 T. I use only 1 1/2 t. chili sauce because I'm wimpy that way! Thicken the sauce with 1 t. cornstarch mixed into 1 c. chicken - Read more ...
  8. These noodles were so good and so easy to make! Thank you so much for sharing the recipe; I'll definitely be making these again. I followed the suggestions of earlier reviewers and cut the sugar by about 1/3 and used fresh noodles. They turned out fantastic. I halved the recipe because I was only cooking - Read more ...
  9. With adjustments this was very nice! I used canola instead of safflower oil & cut it back to 3 tbp., I used a bit more than a tsp. of chile paste instead of chile sauce, cut back on the vinegar & sugar a little & I used rice noodles instead of linguine. I thought it - Read more ...
  10. I have tried many sesame noodle recipes, but after I made this recipe, I ripped up all the old ones! The chili is a great addition. I used Hoboken Eddie's spicy thai chili sauce (it has extra garlic, hot peppers and herbs). I make this every week now. Thanks so much!
