What noodles are best for Thai Peanut Chicken?

Regardless of type, as long as they are thicker noodles that will soak up the delicious and creamy sauce. Fettuccine noodles are my choice . Also i sometimes use Linguine, because they are a great choice with a thinner sauce since the noodles are a bit thinner also.
