Peanut Noodles

What is it about peanut butter that improves a dish?  I am not a big fan of peanuts but I do love peanut butter.  I was glad that separate peanuts were not included in the recipe.  The peanut butter did its job and even hubby who supposedly hates peanut butter (and loves peanuts) gave a top rating to this dish.  Halfway through, he asked what was in it and I cringed a little but he accepted the peanut butter with grace.

Peanut Noodles  (adapted from AllRecipes magazine)


8 ounces Gluten-free spaghetti
1 bunch green onions, sliced
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon  ginger
1/3 cup peanut butter (smooth)
1/4 cup GF soy sauce
1/4 cup hot water
1 tablespoon GF vinegar
1 teaspoon white sugar  (This can be omitted for a healthier result)
1/8 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. 

Mix in peanut butter, soy sauce, water, vinegar, sugar, ginger and red pepper flakes. Remove from heat.
Toss noodles with sauce, and serve.
