Really tasty, used thai massaman paste instead, fresh beans and a scotch bonnet chili and it was amazing!! Definitely one for the recipe collection! Didnt have any rice just a small naan for the sauce mmmm!

Did this for a dinner party as one of 4 dishes as one of the guests was a Veggi. It went down really well with even the kids saying it was nice and having some more. Very taste and easy to do. I use Pumpkin and Butternut squash just because I had both.

this is very healthy and tasty but I wonder if it should be 4 tsp of red thai curry sauce, OK for me because we like mild but it does seem very mild

I really enjoyed this and found it simple to make, however my boyfriend would not eat it as he found it too sweet even when leaving out the pineapple in his. Not peeling the butternut squash was an amazing tip, will save so much time and I didn't notice any difference in taste, thanks!

Such a delicious recipe! Honestly, definitely, definitely try it. I added some red pepper and some lemongrass for flavour but oh my goodness - NOMNOMNOM. X

Pretty good, its hard to make thai food that is as good at it is in the restaurant. But it turned out well and tasted pretty darn good. I added chicken.

hey all, it says it can be frozen, when would that be, before or after the pineapple? thanks

Excellent, though I'd cook the green beans separately as they seemed to take longer than it said and were still a little rubbery :s
