    ChrisMc's Note:

    Soba are Japanese buckwheat noodles - you can find them at some grocery stores; if not, any Asian food store should have them. (The recipe originally called for ramen, but I just couldn't do that to people). I've also had good luck finding dried shiitake mushrooms at a reasonable price at Asian food stores. Prep time includes the final sitting time.

      This was really great! It has a lovely flavor. I added some garlic as well and toasted sesame seeds which I then sprinkled on top. My only complaint was that the sauce tended to be too thick and not smooth enough. I will try increasing theoil next time or using smooth peanut butter, but I will be making it again!
