    This was very flavorful and pretty easy to prepare, in site of the multiple steps. Having vegetables and tofu prepped ahead of time will make preparation easier/smoother. I used rice noodles in place of whole wheat fettuccine. I used lemon juice in addition to lime juice. The sauce was delicious-a hit with my family that I will make again! VFE

    It tasted good, just needed more punch. Maybe more acid?

    I Really, really wanted to like this. But the recipe didn't pull together the way pad thai usually does. Not a favorite in our house. Followed directions as is. Would not make again.

    Very nice dish. Used spinach fettuccine, omitted the fish sauce and cilantro (can't stand it), and substituted some chopped shallot for the green onion which we didn't have.We'll keep this on our regular rotation!

    I don't think this tasted too much like Pad Thai, but I still thoroughly enjoyed it. This was my first time cooking with and eating tofu. I followed other reviewers advice and used chili garlic sauce as oppose to hot sauce. Otherwise I made as directed and was quite pleased.

    I love pad thai and was looking for a cheaper alternative to going to a restaurant. I've made this recipe a couple of times. It's good but the flavor is not very similar to what I'm used to from other pad thai I've eaten (I've eaten pad thai at four or five different thai restaurants).I added boiled cubed chicken breasts to the recipe. I also didn't use snow peas or the carrots and substituted rice noodles for the fettuccine. I'm still on the lookout for a better pad thai recipe but this one was not bad.

    This was delicious! I did add hoisin sauce (1 heaping tbsp) since I didn't have fish sauce and found just using extra soy sauce not to be all that thrilling. Also, because I have bees, I used honey for the sugar. Delicious dinner!
