Reviews for Thai Shrimp Pasta
"This was just OK. We couldn't taste the coconut milk at all. I doubt I'll make it again."
"I really liked the rice noodles, and the whole thing had great flavor as well as being easy to prepare."
"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."
