Truly and outstanding dish! This was reduced to 2 servings and actually got quite a bit more than that. For the coconut milk, I used Fat Free Coconut Milk (For Recipes) which worked like a charm and I am sure reduced the calories and fat considerably. The spaghetti was angel hair. The completed dish was plated and garnished with the chopped peanuts and some sliced green onions. Made for PAC Spring 2008.
