This is a really easy and tasty dish! I cooked the recipe for 8 servings but only used 1 pound not 2 of pasta. I guess the sauce would be a bit more dispersed over more pasta but I really liked it a bit more intense. I also used wholewheat pasta instead of egg and threw in some green onions and just a touch of Thai chili sauce. The wholewheat pasta added a nice earthiness. The only other changes I made was to use chunky Jiff peanut butter (so killed sugar) and a couple Tablespoons more soy sauce. This will be a regular in my house! Read More

I made this a couple nights ago and noone would touch it. This was a waste of time and ingredients. I made this exactly according to the recipe. Read More

I made this for a potluck at work and received rave reviews. I made a double batch of the recipe to serve over 20. I poached 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts and shredded them then added them to the final salad. I also added two more tablespoons of black tea to the peanut butter to cut the peanut flavor even further. This recipe works well with a peanut butter that is not sweetened. If you don't like Thai flavor combinations this may not be for you. I love peanut sauces and love the fact that this recipe is relatively inexpensive to make. I will absolutely be making it again.

I made this for a Halloween potluck; it was very well received. I included 1 cup of chopped green onions to garnish and balance out the cilantro flavour. Read More

Really great and easy!! I didn't use all the peanut butter it called for just enough to give it the flavor. I bought the peanut oil just for the recipe but it wouldn't have been necessary. Read More

Great recipe. I didn't change one thing about this recipe. Although my husband thought it lacked meat...so I may add cold shredded chicken next time. Read More
