Tom Yum Spaghetti Recipe | Thai Fusion Cooking | Asian Pasta

This Tom Yum Spaghetti recipe is irresistable!

It is a Thai Fusion dish that incorporates pasta noodles with asian spices and aroma.

An Asian style pasta you might say…

For this recipe I used shrimp as my protein, but of course you can use your prefered protein choice.

It is only a one portion quick fix, but if you must make this for a larger group, I would recommend making the sauce first and pour over the pasta. Since that is probably the best solution and method for serving more portions at a time.
