"A KK favorite! Do not let the noodles sit in the sauce toss the complete salad together just before serving and to save some time the dressing and/or the pasta can be prepared a day in advance, you can add in your favorite veggies to the salad if desired...this is delicious with the addition of cooked chicken or shrimp or even tofu added"

This was a great side with Tisme's http://www.recipezazz.com/recipe/honey-soy-drumettes-21561. I used crunchy peanut butter and a 1/4 each of red and green capsicum/bell peppers which when making again would dice rather than thick strips, personal preference and I used 3 1/2 ounces of ramen noodles but kept the sauce as per recipe and it was perfect for 2 of us, thank you Kittencal.
