I planned to make this recipe for dinner tonight because it's pretty easy and it tastes so good. The day hasn't started yet, but already I am leaning towards pizza and a few beers. I'll have to let you know. In any case, if you are looking for something a little different give my Peanut Noodle dish a try.
- 8 ounces spaghetti
- 1 bunch green onions, sliced (white parts only)
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger root
- 1/3 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup hot water
- 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon white sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling water until done. Drain.
- Meanwhile, combine oil and onions in a small skillet. Saute over low heat until tender. Add ginger; cook and stir for 1 to 2 minutes. Mix in peanut butter, soy sauce, water, vinegar, sugar, and red pepper flakes. Remove from heat.
- Toss noodles with sauce, and serve. Ready in about 25 minutes. (Prep time: 10 minutes, Cook time: 15 minutes)
I am not a fan of peanuts (although I love peanut butter) but you could add chopped peanuts on top for a nice garnish. I also always add more ginger and red pepper flakes than the recipe calls for because that's how I like it. Substitute udon noodle or anything other long pasta for the spaghetti. Experiment and make it yours.
