Prepare Thai sauce and set aside. Place butter and garlic in clean, heated saute pan. Cook 1 minute. Add shrimp, cook 3 minutes, turning occasionally to cook evenly. Add additional butter if pan becomes too dry.
Add cut vegetables, half of the cilantro and half of the peanuts. Add ½ cup Thai sauce (or more to taste) and mix.
Add shrimp/vegetable mixture to pasta, tossing well to coat. Remove shrimp from mixture.
Divide pasta with vegetables and sauce between 2 serving bowls. Place reserved shrimp, tails up, around rims of bowls, facing toward middle.
Garnish center of each bowl with the onions, remaining peanuts and cilantro. Makes 2 servings.
