“Well... This dish is a ironic dish for me to post as my first recipe to share with you. I LOVE Thai food and this is a great westernized version of Pad Thai. Simple, but tastes fabulous! My husband and I immdetiatley knew this was a hit upon our first bite! Don't be afraid to add other ingredients such as bean sprouts, chicken etc. since we changed the recipe from its original version (Dan Dan Noodles, Food & Wine Jan 2006), my husband renamed it after me. :-)”
