Tasty rice noodles tossed in a homemade pesto that is made in your food processor with fresh coriander, Thai basil, peanuts, garlic cloves and a green chilli.
I was disappointed with the flavor of the pesto. I was hoping for a really asian taste, but it just tasted like peanuty pesto to me. The noodles ended up kind of mushy, too. If you do make this be careful not to add too much water to the pan when you cook them on the stove. I love vietnamese noodles in restaurants, but this didn't even come close for me. - 17 Nov 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Good overall recipe. I would suggest cutting back on the amount of rice noodles the recipe calls for, as the pesto was barely able to cover the full pound of noodles. Was very good with additional jalpeno peppers and sauteed shrimp added. - 28 Dec 2000 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I don't know...this recipe would need serious changes if I made it again. Kind of bland. - 01 Apr 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
