Red Thai Curry Prawn Pasta Bowl

Red Thai Curry Prawn Pasta Bowl

Ditali pasta is a small tubular noodle often used in soups and stews, is also perfect for this shrimp dish. Red curry paste has a strong spicy kick, but if you’re looking for something similar but less spicy, try using the yellow Thai curry paste instead.

    • 2 cups uncooked ditali pasta (500 mL)
    • 1/4 cup canola oil, divided (60 mL)
    • 2 sweet yellow bell pepper, cored, seeded and sliced
