Peanut Butter Noodles

A Vietnamese friend of mine, Connie Haong, gave a little presentation to a preschool class demonstrating a dish they she fixes at home using the recipe below. She tells me that this dish is more Thai than Vietnamese, but it's still pretty tasty. When we make it, we add extra crushed red pepper and about 1/2 pound of sauted shrimp.
