    Great base recipe. As with most people who gave four or five stars, I tinkered with the proportions. That's not a problem with the recipe, just an issue of personal tastes and preferences. Here are the quantities I used: 8 ounces spaghetti 1 bunch green onions, sliced (white parts only) (for the onions, I had access to spring bermuda onions which worked very well) 1 tablespoon sesame oil 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger root 2 cloves garlic, minced 1/3 + 2 TBS cup peanut butter 1/8 cup soy sauce 1/3 cup hot water 1 tablespoon cider or rice) vinegar 1 teaspoon white sugar 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (I used a couple pinches of cayenne pepper powder) I reduced the amount of soy because 1/4 cup seemed like too much sodium for me. I also tripled the ginger (1 TBS instead of 1 tsp) because I like a good, strong ginger flavor and it really turned out well. I also increased the water from 1/4 to 1/3 cup since I reduced the amount of liquid when I decreased the soy sauce. I also added a couple cloves of minced garlic which I added to the oil/onions with the ginger. As I alluded to before, the sign of a truly good recipe is one that can be easily altered to suit individual preferences! Very happy with this recipe.  -  10 Jul 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Phenomenal recipe! I always get tons of compliments when I bring this to potlucks. Because I like to tweak recipes, I added sliced chicken breast, 1 cup of coarse chopped peanuts, chopped green onions (green and white parts both), snow peas, 2 tbsps of sugar instead of 1 tsp, 2 tbsps of minced ginger, and toasted sesame seeds. The flavor really melds well together, and it's even better the next day!  -  02 Sep 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    With some tweakng, this is one of my favorite recipes. I double the peanut butter and red pepper flakes, and usually add more water to thin the sauce. Also, I usually saute a bag of frozen vegetables--one with broccoli, peppers, water chesnuts, and sugarsnap peas, and toss that in at the end. It is delicious, and even better for lunch the next day.  -  26 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
