Wow! My daughter and I were sorely disappointed. We usually LOVE this type of dish and really trust Southern Living recipes. This one missed the mark. Ate half a bowl each and tossed the rest down the drain. The sauce did not stick to the noodles, and also felt there was too much vinegar. I also sauteed the veggies in a bit of sesame oil and added shrimp. Really no other substitutions. I also question why the recipe does not call for cooking the sauce and thickening it. ???
