Do not underestimate the combination of nut butters and noodles! DELISH! If you have a peanut allergy, almond butter, cashew butter, or any other nut and seed butter would work fine in this recipe. One serving is half a cup.

I adore noodles with peanut sauce, and this is a very good version. I didn't use the full cup of water to thin the sauce (actually, I think I used about a 1/2 cup) and I added some frozen peas for color. Thanks for sharing this quick and tasty recipe!

This was good and very easy, using things I already had on hand. Next time I will add less water to the dressing as it was too thin for my taste. I used natural peanut butter and may try with regular pb next time. I liked how simple and quick it was and will certainly make it again! Thanks for posting!

I first reviewed this three months ago and gave it 4 stars. But I've made it at least once or twice a week since then, more than any other recipe on Zaar so far! I think that warrents redoing this as 5 stars for sure. It's soooo quick and easy to prepare (no cooking other than the noodles; I use rice noodles), although I often toast a handful of sesame seeds and add them to the sauce. It had a sharp sweet-tang to it and makes a wonderful, creamy coating for the noodles. Definitely a 'must try!' :o)
