This Vietnamese-inspired dish is a great one-bowl, one-pan option for casual dinner parties. This is a really different kind of pesto that uses peanuts and Asian flavours.
Altered ingredient amounts. I eat a lot of Vietnamese and this has all the right flavours. I did make extra sauce to coat a bit more, but I always order extra sauce for everything!! - 24 Jul 2008
I don't know...this recipe would need serious changes if I made it again. Kind of bland. - 24 Jul 2008
I was disappointed with the flavour of the pesto. I was hoping for a really asian taste, but it just tasted like peanuty pesto to me. The noodles ended up kind of mushy, too. If you do make this be careful not to add too much water to the pan when you cook them on the hob. I love vietnamese noodles in restaurants, but this didn't even come close for me. - 24 Jul 2008
