What a great idea! I loved the sauce. I didn't use the mango chutney but put some pesto in there and my family loved it - so much fun to eat - it was a hit with the whole family. Love you Aarti!""

Great recipe Melissa! Its been so hot here so to have to only boil noodles was perfect. I made the sauce in the morning so it literally took a few minutes to put together which was awesome. Keep them coming, Melissa, I love your show and your ideas!"

I thought this was really different and refreshing. Thanks so much for the suggestion of pears, Trader Joes was out of lychee and I would have had no idea what to substitute. My kids didn't love it but that's ok, more for me : Love you Aarti so glad you are back!!"

Oh my gosh - this is fantastic! I used the pre-chopped garlic which is a huge time saver, a can of Muir Glen roasted tomatoes and Trader Joes sells some pre-grilled chicken strips in their frozen section. Using those shortcuts, this has amazing flavor for such little time. "

SOOOOO Tasty! I always make Alton Brown's baked brown rice and have leftover - this is perfect - takes just minutes and is so flavorful. I use about 1 t. of curry and had pine nuts instead of almonds but its very flexible. Great way to eat brown rice - thank you!
