Although there are some people who would probably never get sick of eating delicious pad thai dishes, this recipe from the Cupcake Project blog offers an unusual take on a classic Thai recipe.

With ingredients like tamarind paste, Sriracha, fish sauce, roasted peanuts, rice noodles, green onions, soy sauce and bean sprouts, this recipe seems pretty true to what you'll find in authentic Asian cooking. However, what really makes this dish stand out is a savory crust, which transforms the dinner meal into something that's more like a pie. Once the crust and the noodles have been prepared separately, the two are combined and baked in the oven to help everything hold together and crisp up. To garnish, this savory 'Pad Phai' can be garnished with peanuts, onions, cilantro and a splash of lime.
