Peanut Sesame Noodles, this is a great dish and easy to make. While your pasta is cooking, you simply throw the rest of the ingredients into a blender and blend away. Mix it all together and Enjoy!
What you need:
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup warm water
2 tablespoons of chopped fresh ginger
1 garlic clove chopped
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons of sesame oil
2 teaspoons honey
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
3/4 pound of thin pasta (thin linguini or spaghetti)
4 scallions, thinly sliced
1 each red pepper, yellow pepper thinly sliced
3 tablespoons of toasted sesame seeds
Modifications: When I made this recipe this time I didn't have some of these ingredients on hand so instead of adding the peppers I added a shredded carrot for some sweetness. Also, I didn't have sesame seeds on hand so I used roasted chopped peanuts.
What you do:
Make the dressing by combining all ingredients in a blender and blending until smooth.
Transfer to a bowl.
Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions.
Drain when done and rinse with cold water.
Add pasta, scallions, bell peppers and sesame seeds to dressing and toss to combine.
