MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 12, 2015

"After seeing the 1 star comment, I decided to make the sauce before messing with the veggies and pasta. I love a good Thai peanut sauce, and at first glance this looked good. I used fresh limes and lime zest. I didn't even have a full 1/4 cup of lime juice and it was way too sour. And, it wasn't very peanut buttery. Long story short, I ended up adding almost twice the amount of peanut butter, and a huge heaping tablespoon of honey. A couple of tablespoons of olive oil, too, for consistency. I wonder, though...I used an organic peanut butter that doesn't have a lot of added sugar and stuff. (Just now switching to organic.) So maybe that's what went wrong. It's a good starter recipe, though, so three stars. I actually started smearing it on crackers to taste test. Haven't had it on the pasta yet."

"Used cherry tomatoes instead of broccoli and added shrimp - yum! It really did make me forget that I was eating whole wheat pasta."

"Very good! Tons of bold flavor. No specific flavor overpowers another. I had to use green pepper instead of red just because that is what I have on hand. If you are worried about the whole wheat taste try either mixing with 4 oz whole wheat and 4 oz white pasta or give dream fields or barilla pasta white fiber a try! They both cook white but have the bonus of fiber!"
