This is one of our favorite meals. It is so easy. Using one pot makes clean-up a snap. The taste is fantastic. We have this when we have to eat and run(or even when we don't). I sometimes replace the broccoli with asparagus. My Son likes it this way even better.

I've made this recipe alot. It was a prize winner in a Better Homes & Gardens recipe contest in 1995. I still have the original clipping from the magazine I took it out of and it has been much cherished all these years! It won in the 30-minute meal category. It's a great quick meal on a work night. I'm not into extremely spicy things and for me it has just the right amount of bite.

I only used 1 Tbs sesame oil and I used instant stir-fry noodles with it, left out the nuts and added tofu. It was GREAT. Not quite 6 servings though. Next time I'll make it double for sure!

Very good! I left out the nuts since DH can't have them, and the green onions since I didn't have any. Otherwise, made as written. Very good, fast and easy to make. I have this in the Better Homes booklet also.

We thought this was pretty good. The only thing I changed is that I served it over rice instead of noodles. If I were to make this again I would add OJ or pineapple juice or something to the sauce because it seemed like it needed to be sweetened. Thanks for posting!

I really liked this recipe - I changed it quite a bit but used the same sauce Karen had (doubled it). I added a lot of vegtables like Bok Choy, Red Peppers, Green Onions, Pea Pods, etc. to make it extra healthy. It was great and good leftover too (even with the shrimp in it)! GREAT!

Hi Karen, loved the dish! Cooked just as posted, except that I used 2 pounds of shrimp & 1/2 cup of cashews. It was wonderful and impressive! Served it with miso soup, california rolls (I cheated, I bought them), and pistachio ice cream. We enjoyed them thoroughly! I wasn't able to cook everything last minute. Thank you for sharing this recipe - saved me from posting it. I found it in the All Time Favorites of Better Homes and Gardens. It was a 1995 Prize Tested Recipe Winner - well it got my vote too!!:=)

A very good meal - I substituted asparagus for the broccoli and it worked out well. I found the sauce a little thick for my taste and would thin it down next time.

i had trouble with this one, though i am inexperienced and I think some of it was due to overcooking the noodles, the sauce i think was too gummy and dry, i would have liked it thinner although this could also be due to the type of pasta. I used thai rice noodles. The flavor was excellent and my BF was happy as a clam. I think next time I will double the sauce for my tastes.

We had this Sun. My DH doesn't like PB so only used half of that but the recipe as written otherwise. I had one serving and he finished the entire thing. A must try!
