    Loved the peanut sauce. My recommendation is to reduce the cooking time for the pasta to only 3 minutes before adding the vegetables. Otherwise, this is a great asian theme recipe that my family loves!!

    This recipe actually overcooks the noodles and snow peas. I would cook the noodles for only 3 mins, and 2 more for the shrimp and peas. It wasn't very appetizing. Think I might make the soba without the sauce next time. Sorry, I do like peanut sauce, but it didn't taste very good. I also love cilantro, but I think just 1/5 cup would be plenty.
