I doctored this recipe up a lot and made it edible, but I won't bother sharing how; instead, I'll just say to make Cooks Illustrated's Sesame Noodles recipe. It's really good, and this one was way too salty and one note.

Our daughter is allergic to peanuts so we used Sunbutter (sunflower seeds) in place of it & it tasted amazing! Not sure what happened with the other meals but this was yummy & got 4 thumbs up (2 of which are a 10 & 9 yr olds). Thanks for an easy, quick & yummy meal.

Made this last night, exactly to recipe, even used natural peanut butter.... woah!! overload of vinegar, apparently whoever came up with this recipe never tasted it!... Please, don't go by what they say! I recommend cutting the vinegar by alot... maybe only do a tablespoon or two, definately not 1/3 of a cup! I also added some sesame seeds for crunch and flavor. After I adjusted, it tasted pretty good. Give it a try.

This was horrible. Don't bother wasting groceries on this, it's going straight into the compost.
