This is a great Asian-style noodle dish. I used to work at a Chinese Restaurant and the simplicity of this dish closely mirrors that style of cooking. If you're looking for a noodle recipe with a heavy or zesty sauce, French or Italian-style dishes are a better choice. That said.....I LOVE this dish! I used vermicelli instead of the rice noodles and doubled the garlic, soy sauce, and chili sauce. A very quick and simple dish. Thanks for posting Serena! Read More

I have to agree with those who rated this as bland. As written it is very bland; it literally had next to no flavor. I added a tablespoon of sesame oil and a teaspoon of fresh ginger minced. In the end it wasn't bad but it still lacked some flavor. Read More

I liked this recipe even though I kinda changed it up. After boiling the noodles. I heated the oil and garlic then added some leftover chicken I put in a few tsp of teriyaki sauce and the added the noodles stir and added some more teriyaki sauce and served. My daughter and I liked it. I wanted to add the chili sauce but I didnt have any. So I use a dash of pepper which really didnt do anything so I added a little soy sauce. Yum. Read More

This recipe was real easy & quick. My family really enjoyed it and I will make this again. I did over cook the noodle so I will keep a closer eye on them next time. Thanks Read More

I didn't quite follow the recipe. I added chicken and doubled the chili sauce and soy sauce. I also didn't have green onions so I used a small white onion and cooked it with the garlic. My husband and son loved it but I found it a little bland. Next time I'll add some vegetables and maybe a chile pepper. But it's a good basic recipe if you don't like alot of spice. Read More

I thought this was good but suggest omitting the chili sauce (or at least minimizing it) and replacing with ginger. Read More
