Peanutty Noodles for Christine

I love Christine Brame. She is a great example to me of true friendship. She is also an example of endurance and having a positive attitude. She keeps me organized and in a positive place...even when there is chaos all around.
I will miss our yearly celebration of Chinese New Year and Chinese class. But, the great thing about having such a good friend is that distance will not keep us apart.

Peanutty Noodles (source: cooking light)

A quick and easy meal with everyday staples. I like it best with snow peas and carrots. Beware of using regular soy sauce-it is very salty.

  • 1 lb spaghetti noodles

Boil as directed

  • 1 tea oil
  • 1 tea minced fresh ginger
  • 2 tea minced fresh garlic

Saute for 30 seconds.

  • 1 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 3 Tb rice vinegar or white wine vinegar

Add to above and whisk well. Simmer 7 minutes stirring often.

Mix noodles and sauce with any of the following:

  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 carrots, peeled and shaved into thin strips
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 1 box frozen snow peas, cooked
  • 1/2 lb bean sprouts, washed
