READER'S COMMENT:
"This was amazing! I used rotisserie chicken and as most people recommended, crunchy peanut butter. I added some scallions to the veggie mix and made 1 1/2 x the sauce since we tend to like a little more. Served with extra chili sauce on...

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.

This is much better using whole wheat liguini...and a few modifications. Omit using the cooking liquid because there is usually enough water from the veggies and noodles. To add more flavor...omit garlic sauce and use crushed red pepper flakes (I crush some dried thai chilis) to taste and grate in 2-3 cloves of garlic, a two inch piece of ginger, and a little lime zest. I also use the juice of 1/2 a lime. Wisk in with the soy sauce, peanut butter, and a couple of tablespoons honey or brown sugar. The sweet and spicy combo is great. You can also go all veg or saute some firm tofu in some sesame oil before adding the veggies and it is still very delicious.

Gloppy, bland and weird taste. I had high hopes for a good thai peanut sauce, but this was not it. The only thing I could taste was peanut butter.

Very good recipe. I served it with some thai sweet chili sauce and that really enhanced the flavor.

This was a quick, easy recipe. My husband and I enjoyed the recipe as it is listed, but found it a bit bland. I changed it a bit the next time by adding a few dashes of cayenne pepper and reducing by half the amount of water added to the peanut butter. We loved it!
