I felt that the other review for this recipe was very harsh. Anyone who's made pad thai at home knows that no matter how hard you try, it's very difficult to come close to what you get in a restaurant for this dish. True, it's not a perfect match by any means. However, I think it's a creative take on a wonderful classic and simple enough to enjoy any time. I added a couple of scrambled eggs to the recipe and if I make it again, I'll probably half the crushed tomatoes and liquid overall. Still, I really enjoyed this. Thanks for sharing!
This soup is nowhere near the taste of a traditional pad thai. Pad thai is a dish that is full of flavor and this lacks that. This should be more appropriately called “shrimp spaghetti”. While it was not what I wanted, it simply needs to be named differently to be more likeable. The recipe also lacks flavor. I’d be interested in a remake because despite buying all the ingredients, it just didn’t live up to the description.
