    Julesong's Note:

    Jayne likes his noodles easy and fast. This is about as fancy as he gets when making them. Just a bit sweet and spicy… if he’s being uncharacteristically generous and sharing them with someone else, he might leave out the cayenne. (Inspired by Joss Whedon’s television show “Firefly” and movie “Serenity.”)

      I really liked this... of course I really like peanut butter! And Yes, the Firefly reference did catch my eye. I use Simply Jiff (reduced sodium and sugar). I used minced onion and garlic, but may just used powdered next time for speed and see if it is still as yummy. I used 8 ounces (dry) udon noodles (a first for me... they are tasty even plain! But they were expensive at my store, so I may need to use spaghetti or egg noodles next time) and doubled the sauce ingredients... this made 4 fairly large servings. I may back off on the cayennne a bit next time, although my husband wouldn't agree! :) I thought this was definitly better fresh than it was the next day. Thanks for the new recipe! So nice to have something quite different than our usual!

      This is good. I used green onion instead of onion, suger free honey, spaghetti, minced garlic, otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I think this would also be good cold. Thank you for posting.

      Like this alot, made it last night and am making it again to take to a pot luck tonight. Not the best Satay (peanut) sauce I've ever had but definiately good, quick and easy. Prefer with the ground ginger, made with spaghetti, did thin with sour cream, bit too thick, would double, nice with sweet chilli sauce instead of cayenne, used mince garlic and didn't bother with the garnish, was too busy eating it. Thanks for the super fast and friendly recipe.
