Pasta with Peanut Sauce
This asian-inspired sauce is very easy to make. You stir up the sauce while any long-strand pasta is cooking (spaghetti, linguine, soba noodles, even ramen without the flavoring packet). This time, I served it with somen noodles*, green beans, and tofu, making a vegan meal. Not low-calorie or low-fat, but no animal products.
*1/2 C peanut butter (the chunkier, the better. They make one that has whole peanuts in it.)
*1/4 C soy sauce
1/4 C warm water
1 tsp ginger
*1 Tb toasted sesame seeds
1. Whisk together peanut butter, soy sauce, and water until smooth.
2. Whisk in ginger and sesame seeds.
3. Pour over cooked, drained, and rinsed hot pasta. Serve immediately.
