I added flavored tofu, which added some additional protein and substance to this dish. My whole family liked it and I will definitely make it again. Loved the ginger sauce.

Quite tasty. I only found a package of 6 oz noodles so I halved the honey and sesame oil but added all the rest in the same proportions. Next time I'll add an egg or chicken. 13 WW points.

This was easy and delicious. I left out the broccoli but added a bag of stir fry veggies and a carton of mushrooms. Really good. At first I was worried there wasn't enough sauce but the ginger really coated everything and it was very flavorful.
