    Tasted amazing! I doubled the sauce recipe and added more sriracha sauce for more spice! All-in-all, I would make this again!

    We didn’t have peanuts, so we mixed a heaping tablespoon of peanut butter into the sauce mix, which I one and a halved the measurements for. I also added about a half a teaspoon of Sriracha I would say it was about ⭐️⭐️ as far as heat goes. We used about 7oz of noodles and 1.5ing the sauce was the perfect amount. We liked it enough that we’re having it again with left over pork tonight.

    It was a little dry but that’s normal for pad Thai. Overall it was really good! Great flavors and pretty easy. I added scallops and bok choy. I’ll make it again! Delicious.

    It turned out bit dry. I don’t think I soaked the noodles long enough and they sucked up the sauce. The flavor was really good and my whole family liked it! I added some thinly sliced carrots with it. We will make this dish again

    Doubled the sauce which made it a bit tangy, maybe a little more sugar would help with that. Very good though!

    Awful. Tasted nothing like pad Thai. Listened to recommendations to increase the sauce - it was a soupy mess so I added tofu. Tofu absorbed so much liquid it was then just dry mush.

    all i did was use the sauce recipe. i added all kinds of veggies and used chicken instead of egg. but it turned out awesome

    Sauce was great! Made too much pasta Thai but ran out of sauce so had to make more on the fly, just threw the sauce ingredients right in to my already pretty much done food and it turned out great!

    I LOVE this recipe. I am a beginner cook and it was so easy to make but SO delicious. This tastes like my favorite restaurant's Pad Thai.

    Love it! It's one of the best Pad Thai recepies I've tried so far. Sometimes I just add some vegetables or tofu to switch it up.

    I also diced a half a package (8 oz) of extra firm tofu, browned it in a pan with some canola and sesame oil, and added it when I added the scrambled eggs to the noodles. I substituted cashews for peanuts. It could use a little extra tang, so I may try adding some sweet chili sauce next time.
