Tips
Thai red curry paste can be found in the Asian-foods section of most grocery stores. Add the lower amount first until you've tasted it—it's spicy!
If you will be using leftover spaghetti or making the spaghetti ahead of time, toss with 2 teaspoons sesame oil to prevent the noodles from sticking together.
