I made this with linguini noodles and chicken for my Thai loving husband, he loved it! I substituted the fish sauce for soy sauce and used cayenne pepper in addition to the red pepper flakes. I also put it on a pan on the stove and had to watch it closely while it cooked so it didn't burn. Very delicious with the pasta!!
