Coconut Red Curry Sauce with Noodles

I found this recipe on a link party & really liked the sound of the dish. It is definitely different than anything I have ever tried, but I really liked it. The flavors are not as bold as I had imagined them to be, but they marry well together & it has a subtle heat at the end of each bite.

Coconut Red Curry Sauce with Noodles

I am a big fan of noodles with vegetables. They are my favorite combination, & this recipe has some good ones. This dish originated from Bobby Flay & had tofu & mushrooms in it. Not for me thanks, I am a picky eater, but I bet chicken or shrimp (for seafood lovers) would go really well in this.
