Expert Tips

  • Thai red curry paste can be found in the Asian-foods section of most grocery stores. Add the lower amount first until you've tasted it—it's spicy!
  • If you will be using leftover spaghetti or making the spaghetti ahead of time, toss with 2 teaspoons sesame oil to prevent the noodles from sticking together.
