One Pot Thai Pasta

This One Pot Thai Pasta was a HIT. I love Thai food, but sometimes Thai recipes can be really complicated. This recipe took about a half an hour from start to finish and it tasted AMAZING. I love that when all is said and done, I only have to clean one pot (especially if we use paper plates, which does happen around here occasionally on busy weeknights). If you love one-pot meals, try out my other favorite: One-Pot Teriyaki Chicken Bowls.

Perfect Flavor Balance

This recipe is packed with veggies and the sauce is a perfect balance of spicy and sweet. If you want to add more spice, you can add a whole teaspoon of red pepper flakes, instead of a half. Also, if you are worried about using fish sauce, don’t be. It adds a good flavor to the sauce, but doesn’t taste fishy at all. If it really freaks you out, just use two tablespoons of soy sauce instead.

Are There Other Meat Options?

Yes! We chose to add shrimp to this recipe, but you could also add chicken or do a vegetarian version (no shrimp, no fish sauce, and vegetable broth instead of chicken broth). This recipe makes really good leftovers, but it does dry out a little bit. I added a little soy sauce and some sweet chili sauce before I popped it in the microwave and it was perfect!

More Great Thai Flavor

  • Thai Chicken Enchiladas are filling, fresh, sweet, spicy and flavorful!
  • Thai Coconut Soup is full of sweet coconut, tangy lime and tender chicken. You’ll love the bursts of sweet and savory in this soup.
