Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Cook the noodles according to the package directions.

  • Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the pork and cook, turning, until browned on all sides, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add the curry paste, scallion whites, and ginger. Cook, stirring, until the paste darkens, about 1 minute.

  • Add the squash and 2 cups water. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the squash is tender, 7 to 9 minutes. Stir in the reserved pork, coconut milk, and fish sauce and cook until the pork is cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the noodles.

  • Serve the soup topped with the basil, lime wedges, and scallion greens.

Chef's Notes

Make Ahead: Make the soup, keeping the noodles and garnishes separate, up to 2 days in advance. To serve, warm over low heat, add the noodles, and top with the lime, basil, and scallions.
