Recipe by Greeny4444

If you like peanut sauce on your noodles, this is great comfort food (at least for me). Get a bowl, curl up on the couch, and watch a movie! You can also substitute chicken or shrimp for the tofu (then it wouldn't be vegetarian, of course - the tofu is great in it, though). Add or subtract what you like, and let me know how it turns out!
