Ah a nice Thai-insprired pasta salad. Sounds like something my mom would whip together and I would undoubtedly disregard the work that goes along with it. However, it also something I would never have thought of myself (that is unless it comes in an easy Mac variety). However, with Chef'd and Spoon University's new meal kit, gourmet meals like this are made easy enough for us kitchen-shy college folk.
