    A few additions added a LOT of flavor to this recipe: 1 tbsp lemon juice, 1/2 - 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh ginger, 1 tsp+ each of cayenne pepper and chili powder to replace the chili sauce, and chunky peanut butter for crunch. I also used fat-free half-and-half to replace the cream (milk works well, too) because there's enough fat in the peanut butter. The half-and-half keeps it creamy. I let the sauce sit for about an hour and it was great served with a stirfry of broccoli, carrots, and red pepper over noodles.  -  16 Jan 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    This was a delicious recipe! I modified it slightly, but used the same measurements. Sticking with traditional Thai cooking, I replaced the heavy cream with coconut milk. I also added a dash of fish sauce. I replaced the chili sauce with 1 tsp dried red pepper flakes. I used dark soy just because it has a deeper flavor. I also replaced hot water with chicken stock. You can always add more stock to thin the sauce. For the garnish, I used scallions and crushed peanuts.  -  16 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Outstanding! The leftovers were even better as the flavors "soaked" into the noodles! My boyfriend didn't like this (the PB was just too much for him BUT...perhaps if I had fed him the leftovers, he might have changed his mind? ) A couple changes: First, I used 1/2c HOT chicken broth instead of the water and used only 8oz spaghetti noodles so that it wouldn't be "dry." Second, right before the noodles were done, I tossed in a head of chopped broccoli into the water so that they would cook. Finally, I fried up 2 chicken breasts in a little butter and chicken broth - cut them in chunks and placed them atop the pasta. The broccoli gave this color (and I love my veggies) the chicken added some substance and the noodles tasted - well - just darn good! I would have liked this a little spicier but I can play around with that more the next SEVERAL times I make this! Thanks a bunch Holly!  -  15 Jul 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
