      We made this for dinner last night and it was certainly easy to make and required minimal prep, which was great for a weekday. Subbed veggie broth for chicken broth; otherwise made the recipe as posted. We served over lo mein noodles. I might have added some chili flakes or Thai chili peppers for additional heat, but that is personal preference. Thanks!

      You have done it again! This is an outstanding dish that is easy enough for a weeknight but elegant enough for a dinner party. I used the minimum amount of chili paste but will up it next time around. It was served with Perfect Basic Brown Rice for a delicious meal. Made for *PAC Spring 2010*
