This was really good! Easy to make and very flavourful! I added shrimp to ours and it was a perfect match. Thank you!

  1. Cook the noodles according to the package directions. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, over medium heat, combine the coconut milk, tomato paste, chili powder, salt, and chili paste or sauce (if using). Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 2 or 3 minutes. Stir in the drained noodles and toss. Divide the noodles among individual bowls. Top with the scallions, sprouts, basil, and coconut (if using).

  3. To toast shredded coconut, scatter it on a baking sheet and place in a 350 degree Fahrenheit oven until it's golden. 3 to 5 minutes. Watch carefully: it goes from toasted to scorched in seconds.
