I came up with this recipe when my son was home from the Navy. He loves Thai food and I wanted to make something special but simple. There wasn't a noodle left in the bowl! —Jana Rippee, Casa Grande, Arizona

"This was just OK. We couldn't taste the coconut milk at all. I doubt I'll make it again."

"I made it as stated. Not enough flavor made as is, I would add something more to it, then it wouldn't be this recipe. Maybe more curry, a little garlic and red pepper flakes."
