    I love this recipe...I make it once a week! We make it with mushrooms and steamed broccoli in the sauce and serve it over steamed brown rice. - 2/16/09

    Is the calorie info just for the pad thai sauce? It looks really low for sauce with noodles and some sprinkled peanuts. - 2/20/09

    The calories are just the ingredients listed, so no, it does not include pasta & peanuts. Wilma

    FiancÚ and I liked this a lot. I served it with pan-fried tofu, steamed broccoli, and udon noodles. Next time, fewer noodles and more broccoli. I think I may have cooked the sauce too long, as it was very thick at the end. Next time I won't cook it as long or will thin it a bit at the end. - 5/26/11

    I made this recipe because I had leftover rice noodles and needed a sauce. IT WAS AWESOME. I didn't have ginger or cayenne pepper and it still turned out good....but I did add a tablespoon of really hot chili sauce. I will make this again and again! Just as good as eating as eating out Thai. - 2/15/10
