Hi...
We had this for dinner last night and it was great! I made my own Thai peanut sauce (I had the ingredients on hand and the bottle in the store was pricey!)
Enjoy!

PEG'S NOTE: The bottle of Thai peanut sauce is a little pricey...so I made my own (just because I had all the ingredients on hand)...it was quick and easy to make up and really good...Here is the recipe for that:
