    This is a truely lovely and different pasta salad. Like a lot of these types of salads it was much nicer on the second day. Thank you for an excellent recipe.  -  02 Jul 2009


    Very tasty indeed - and spicy. Try going to the local market and picking up some Asian noodles instead of fettucine. Also, the peanut butter can be annoying to mix unless you first microwave it for a short time - then it become soupy and "more liquified" and user-friendly without losing any flavor. Just be sure not to overcook the pb in the microwave; burnt pb stinks!  -  29 Mar 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Love this recipe - made a few modifications. My daughter made the "sauce" (so I hope her measurements were accurate) - I did add 1 tsp of red wine vinegar as another suggested. This recipe sounded to me like it should be served warm = so I added some cooked/cubed chicken breast, and added into the sauce. I then sauted the red & green bell pepper, onion, celery and garlic = added them warm to the "sauce." Last, I cooked Thai rice noodles (for "authenticity") and mixed to coat with the sauce, chicken and veggies. Love it! Great recipe and could make a great summer or winter dish. Thanks Julie - I'm adding this to my list of favorites!  -  30 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
