    Yummy. A nice change from the peanut butter sauce that I usually serve over cold noodles.  -  28 Apr 2010


    Used different ingredients. Okay this was great, but I had to make a lot of substitutions. My tahini was a little dried out so I used peanut butter. I used udon noodles, and chilli sauce instead of chilli oil. Minor changes, but I LOVED the end result.  -  21 Jul 2008


    Used different ingredients. Outstanding...it was all gone; I made a double portion to share with friends. I had no peanut oil or tahini so I used canola oil and peanut butter. I used the flat 'linguine' type Chinese noodles. It can be heated if you prefer it that way....  -  21 Jul 2008
