SOAK rice noodles for 30 minutes in hot tap water; drain. Noodles will be flexible but not soft.
COMBINE water, sugar, ketchup, soy sauce, juice of 1 lime wedge (1 teaspoon) and cayenne pepper in small bowl.
HEAT oil in large, non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add shrimp and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes or until shrimp turns pink. Stir in noodles, stirring quickly to keep from sticking. Pour ketchup mixture over noodles; cook for 2 minutes or until sauce is absorbed, stirring constantly.
PUSH noodles to side of skillet. Add egg to skillet, stirring until cooked. Stir in bean sprouts, 1/2 cup green onions and 1/4 cup peanuts until mixed. Mound mixture on large serving plate. Pour 1/2 cup peanut sauce down center of noodles and sprinkle with remaining green onions and peanuts. Squeeze 2 lime wedges over noodles and garnish with additional wedges. Serve with remaining peanut sauce.
SERVING SUGGESTION: Serve Peanut Sauce with grilled chicken satays or chicken fingers.
* NOTE: If rice noodles are not available, 8 ounces dried linguine, prepared according to package directions can be substituted.

I made this for dinner last night but I replaced chicken for the shrimp, it was excellent.
I had been looking for a simple peanut sause and this was it. I've used it as a salad dressing as well as a dip for chicken satay. Feel quilty I never got around to making the pad thai
This is a relatively easy dish to make and it tastes fantastic! Bring us more of these great, "at home" recipes! Thanks!!
I made this according to the recipe, except doubled the sauce. I've tried making pad thai before and it never tastes as good as the restaurant. This recipe does!
I ALWAYS READ THE REVIEWS, I FIND THEM VERY HELPFUL. THE PEANUT DIDN'T SEEM TO GO OVER VERY WELL, SO I LEFT IT OUT. GOOD FOR A CHANGE.
This is a very easy reciepe even though it has lots of ingredients. I will use less peanut butter next time.
Not what we expected. A little too peanutty for us. Probably won't prepare this again.
