Of the variety of recipes I've used on this site, this has been my favorite so far. It is unfortunate to read the review from the person who thought it had a weird taste--I suppose if you don't like Thai food or if you haven't had too much exotic cuisine, it might come across as a different type dish. I'm not a fan of whole-wheat pasta; but adding the peanut butter transformed the taste (and instead of whole-wheat, I used even healthier (and tastier) multi-grain pasta). I also recommend that instead of using fresh garlic and/or ginger --buy the paste. You can usually find it in the produce section near the bagged produce/tofu area--and it goes a lot further and lasts longer. Plus, it saves time from having to peel, etc.
