    My family Loves this recipe! I dont use the mint or nuts. And I add a few tablespoons of pinapple juice to the sauce. I also add water chestnuts. Yummy

    I decided to try this recipe inspite of the bad reviews and found it wasn't bad. It wasn't great, definitely wasn't authentic, but my husband and I liked it and the kids LOVED it. The fact that it's very easy to make helps too! I think you need to be careful not to overcook the noodles and other ingredients, as is normally the case in Asian cooking. I found the sugar cut the acidity of the lime and the pineapple added a nice sweetness. Don't be afraid to try this recipe. It's easy and tasty.

    Hmmm..NOT a fan of this. Something about the ingredients just didn't combine well. Was it supposed to be served cold? hot? lukewarm? The pineapple was...weird, and the leftovers were even weirder. Kind of mushy when reheated and there again was the strange pineapple.

    I too thought the lime was overpowering. I might try pineapple juice instead, but also didn't want a cold meal in the winter.

    It sounded good until I realized this is a cold meal. It is really cold in Minnesota and we need hot food right now, but will try it this summer.

    I agree with Inbee. I made this recipe with half the lime but added a little zest and it came out perfectly. I also used a rotisserie chicken, spaghetti

    I didn't like this. The lime is overpowering.
