    I saw this on an episode of Cooking Thin with Kathleen Daelemans. It looked so easy and so yummy. I haven't tried it yet, but will soon.

      This was just delicious. I soaked my rice noodles in boiling water for about 3 minutes, as opposed to 20. And while I used 8 ounces of rice noodles as called for, the dish was a little "noodle heavy." Next time I will use less noodles or just up the amounts of the other good things (shrimp, eggs, peanuts, etc.) It was so good, such a refreshing change from syrupy sweet pre-made Pad Thai sauces that we've tried. I would love to make this again, and I highly recommend serving it with pan fried dumplings (potstickers) with a little tempura sauce on the side. What a top notch dinner this made!!

      Wonderful! It was less sweet and more flavorful than any Phad Thai I've had in the US (including some good Thai restaurants). It reminded me more of the food you're served in Thailand than the Americanized versions. I added about 3/4 cup soft tofu after the eggs for a little extra protein. Other than that followed the recipe to a T and it turned out great.
