I had peanut noodles at a Thai carry-out place and then craved them again days later (and miles away). This recipe cures my craving for those noodles. I love cilantro and I add more than the recipe states :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook pasta according to box directions, drain and rinse with cold water in a colander. Transfer pasta to a large bowl and toss with sesame oil and sesame seeds. Set aside.
  2. Heat the broth in a medium saucepan over medium heat; cook about 2 minutes. Set aside. Puree peanut butter, soy sauce, sugar and vinegar in a blender or food processor; stir mixture into broth. Cook until flavors combine, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Toss together the pasta and peanut butter dressing. Add garlic, cilantro, green onions, peanuts and ginger. Serve at room temperature.

This was amazingly simple and delicious. I subbed fresh mint for the cilantro but other than than followed the recipe as written. The kids loved having "peanut butter noodles." This will be a regular at our house

Made this for 'zaar tag and it was very good. I used regular spaghetti, and forgot to put the ginger in (oops!), but other than that, I stuck to the recipe. Next time though, I think I might add some chopped green chilis for spice. I served this Asian spiced pork chops and stir fried sugar snap peas. It would be equally good on its own though. Thanks Hey Jude!
