This is really good though it wasn't nearly as spicy as I expected and I used habenaro instead of chilies. I'll add even more spice next time. I did make a few changes but not a ton. I used pork instead of chicken because chicken is over $5 a pound and I can't afford it very often. I didn't have fish sauce so I had to substitute. At the end I decided I needed more veggies so I grated a carrot into the sauce and also added a grating of lime zest. This one's a keeper.

This is very good! The flavor is rich and complex. I left out the chilis and it was still a little spicy - I guess from the curry. Next time I will double the sauce ingredients as we wished there was more sauce for the noodles to soak up. This is only my second time cooking with lemongrass, so I may adjust my rating when I've tried it again. Personally, I would have given it 5 stars, but the family leaned more towards 4.

This is totally awesome. My house smelled so good while this was cooking. I did make a couple of small changes though, I can't find fresh lemon grass here, but had some in a tube, (it's like Lemon Grass paste), so I used that, and I was out of fresh peppers, so I used dried flakes. It was spicy but not burn your face offf hot, I used rice noodles, and will probably use a different type pasta next time as the MOTH thinks rice pasta is nasty... sheesh. Thanks for a new way to fix chicken
