8 ounce(s) thin rice noodles (about 1/8-inch wide), angel-hair pasta or thin spaghetti
4 ounce(s) firm tofu, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (about 3/4 cup)
3 tablespoon(s) lower-sodium fish sauce, plus additional for serving

2 tablespoon(s) sugar
8 ounce(s) ground chicken
2 clove(s) garlic, finely chopped

1/2 cup(s) (loosely packed) fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
1/4 cup(s) unsalted roasted peanuts, coarsely chopped
2 teaspoon(s) vegetable oil

Meanwhile, place tofu between several layers of paper towels, pressing lightly to drain.
In small bowl, combine fish sauce, lime juice, and sugar. Assemble chicken, garlic, ground red pepper, beaten eggs, sliced cabbage, bean sprouts, chopped cilantro, and chopped peanuts, and place next to range for ease of cooking.
In nonstick 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add tofu and cook 5 minutes or until golden, stirring occasionally. Transfer tofu to small bowl.
In same skillet, cook chicken, garlic, and ground red pepper over medium-high heat 3 to 4 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink, breaking up chicken with side of spoon. Stir in eggs and cook about 30 seconds or until they start to set.
To skillet with chicken mixture, add drained noodles, tofu, sliced cabbage, and fish sauce mixture. Using tongs or 2 forks, toss to combine, and cook 2 minutes longer. Remove skillet from heat. Add bean sprouts, cilantro, peanuts, and green onions; toss to mix well. Serve Pad Thai with lime wedges and additional fish sauce.
