This flavorful pasta dish pairs shrimp or chicken with noodles and a peanutty sauce. I don't know how authentic it is, but I do know it's creamy and delicious! And as an added bonus, it's low-fat. This recipe is from Looneyspoons by Janet and Greta Podleski.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and keep warm.
  2. While pasta is cooking, prepare sauce.
  3. In a large saucepan, combine all ingredients except shrimp; mix well.
  4. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium.
  5. Cook and stir for 3-4 minutes, until vegetables are crisp-tender and sauce is bubbly and slightly thickened.
  6. Stir in shrimp (or chicken) and cook just until heated through, 1-2 minutes; do not overcook or shrimp will be rubbery.
  7. Toss hot shrimp sauce with pasta and serve immediately.

We really liked this. My 2 picky teenagers both gave this a thumbs up. Rare that they both like the same thing. One comment I got was to use less peanut butter next time but that's probably my fault and I didn't measure very well and probably used too much. Excellent recipe...thanks for sharing!

Nice and easy dish to put together. I was out of snow peas so I substituted sliced carrots, and stir fried them a bit before adding the remaining sauce ingredients. I doubled up the sauce ingredients as other reviewers suggested, but kept the red pepper flakes at 1/2 tsp.. I served this over whole wheat pasta. Very flavourful dish and will definitely be making this again. Thanks for the recipe.

This was great! I used chicken - cut into small chunks and sauteed in olive oil, then removed and made the sauce in the same skillet. I didn't have the green onions, so just sauteed some onions. I also didn't have snow peas so I used some frozen stir fry veggies. I doubled the sauce ingredients per some of the other suggestions as I like things saucy. It tastes just like a dish at our local Thai restaurant which is simply called "brown" - they serve it over rice, so I'm sure this would be good over rice as well.
