Thai Coconut Curry Noodles.
These curry noodles are like curly fries. Somehow the curliness makes them exceptional.
Different pasta shapes and sizes give a dish a certain feel. There are definitely specific occasions to use penne versus spaghetti. In this case, the curly noodles make this curry noodle soup uniquely slurp-worthy.
I developed this dish after reading a recipe on the website of one of my favorite chef personalities – Sam the Cooking Guy. He’s a bundle of crazy fun and very entertaining. Plus he makes simple, delicious food. His recipe for Thai Curry Noodle Soup is tops on my yum-o-meter!
With a couple small tweaks, mushrooms and more curly noodle madness, I make it into a vegetarian bowl (vegan too).
