    It tasted like heaven but the saucewas a bit to thick, so I had to add water

    Great flavor. Sauce thickened up a little too much once tossed. I used rice noodle instead of spaghetti which I felt led to the thickness. Overall it was really good.

    With Asian foods that have lots of vegetables it is very important to cut them correctly. I think that 2” in length was a bit long. I did use thin rice noodles instead of spaghetti, after all, it is a Thai dish. Both of us liked the flavors a lot. I also wondered how it would taste if the recipe was stir fried after cooking the noodles a little less time than is required so that the sauce is soaked up. I will try it again.

    delicious! this will definitely become one of our staple spaghetti dinners. the peanut sauce could br usef in so many other ways. i added shrimp, but chicken or pork would also be fantastic

    This was fantastic, but I made a few changes. I used large rice noodles and cooked them al dente, and added bean sprouts for a traditional crunch and texture. I also cubed chicken I cooked in a bit of coconut oil and tossed it in for added substance. I would double the peanut sauce next time I make it, to have extra for people on the side. Great dish to make sauce and chop veggies ahead of time and take to potlucks.

    Great! My daughter doesn’t like chilli so I omitted the hot ingredients & everyone enjoyed it.

    Delicious sauce (even without adding the lime- I accidentally forgot it) though I only put half the sriracha since my toddler was also having it. She loved it, by the way! I also added tofu and put the carrots and peppers in the pan after I turned the heat off the tofu to soften them just slightly (a personal preference). Pretty simple dish with a lot of flavor.

    Loved the flavor! I added grilled chicken, and served over rice instead of using noodles

    Easy to make for a big group. Recipe is easily doubled. You could make the sauce ahead of time and keep in the fridge. Add oil and heat on a wok to serve slightly warm. Yum!

    loved it. i did use rice noodles instead of spaghetti

    This might just be personal taste but it was ok. I think I used too much sauce. At first taste it was peanut butter on spaghetti then ended spicy which paired well with the raw veggies.

    Great recipe! Halved the quantities and used noodles instead of pasta and it turned out fine. Will be making this again!

    Yum, yum, yum is how it turned out! Made this tonight for supper and loved the creamy peanut sauce and the crunchy fresh veggies. Leftovers are going to great for lunch tomorrow - and for that reason, I just sprinkled the peanuts on each plate after it was served so they wouldn't go soft overnight on the leftovers.

    I made this recipe and loved it! The only drawback was all the time it took to prep everything due to the long list of ingredients. There is a lot to chop and put into the sauce. If you have the time to complete this recipe, it will be worth it. FYI- This recipe calls for a lot of cilantro. I suggest cutting this amount in half if the people you cook for are not fans.
