You won’t have to journey to Thailand to find this, but you may have to wait 12 months – or at least until ALDI decides to have this special again.  I don’t know how I missed it the first time, but I did find it marked down to $1.25, half price, the next week.  Unfortunately when I got back to the store two days later, it was all gone.

This is very good.  The slight sweetness of the coconut milk contrasts nicely with the spices and moderate heat of the other ingredients in the thin curry sauce.  It’s a very good sauce approaching good restaurant quality.  Floating in the sauce are big chunks of veggies and big noodles. The wide flat noodles are thicker and wider than a linguine noodle for comparison.  The cooked noodles had a nice texture and were cooked just about to perfection. Among the veggies were baby corn, sugar snap peas, carrots and pieces of red bell pepper and mango.  Normally I don’t like baby corn, but these were different.  First, they were the size where they should be attending kindergarten.  Second, they also were correctly cooked and had none of that starchy taste of the smaller baby corn.

I know the math doesn’t add up, but I wasn’t entirely sure I had a 1200 watt oven.  At any rate, the results were good.
