I used angel hair pasta and you will def need a large pan to stir all of the ingredients even if you use the rice noodles. And yes this dish will serve six! Made it for my husband and I and had a lot of leftovers! Also found this in Cooking Light magazine, it was really good, but I will add more red pepper flakes to turn up the heat some more. Also added extra peanuts for some extra crunch! Healthy and yummy!

I drastically reduced the amount of ingredients to serve 2. I omitted the egg and substituted the sprouts with finely chopped cabbage and added some slivers of red pepper and celery. I did not have peanuts so added toasted cashew nuts. A delicious easy Pad Thai we both enjoyed! I love Thai food, as the chef said not authentic, but very good.
