Tips to make the best spicy Thai noodles with vegetables:

  • You can use any kind of noodles/long pasta to make this dish. The traditional rice noodles that go in Thai recipes, can be used too.
  • Adjust heat in this recipe as per your tolerance level.
  • I have used store-bought chili sauce in this recipe.
  • You can add some red pepper flakes to this dish for extra heat if you love spicy food!
  • If you are vegetarian then you can skip the fish sauce. Adding fish sauce to the dish gives amazing flavor to the final dish, although the sauce smells funny. But adding along with other ingredients won't make you realize the smell of fish sauce.
