    Asian meets Italian. This is a spicy chicken pasta that is a little bit different but tastes great. Pasta can be exchanged for noodles if desired.

    I loved this quick/easy/delicious recipe & fwd'd it to all my friends; you can tone down the hotness or use red pepper powder instead & to make it more elegant, for a thai dinner party, use rice noodles not pasta, serve with a bowl of crushed peanuts for topping, and garnish the plates with lime wedges & a flower blossom.  -  10 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was tasty. I couldn't find whole dried red peppers so I used crushed instead. This is a very simple meal - not fancy enough to serve to guests, but just fine for a busy weeknight.  -  17 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I found this recipe bland. It needed more sauce and more spice! I will not make it again  -  19 Jul 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
