Really enjoyed this, used lemon instead of lime (no lime in the house! ) and tasted fine. Quick to do, could make the sauce ahead.

Used cooked shredded pork from Sunday roast and added more veg and a pack of bean sprouts and was very tasty, but my family all said loose the mint next time. Will do again though as quick easy tea

Blugh as the recipe stands although probably has potential with some additional ingredients

Not the best. Needs more veg and some chilli.

We love this! it's a regular on our menu now. Made a mistake with the noodles last time though and boiled them - sticky mess!..they only need to soak in boil-ED water! yum all the same.

Low fat, low cost and pretty tasty but the sauce doesn't stick to the noodles. This was nice enough, but I wouldn't make it again.

I enjoy the simple things in life (like this). I think there was too much vinegar, but I reduced it the second time I made it
