Grannydragon's Peanut Butter Noodles

"I really enjoy eating pasta and peanut butter separately. This combo really grabs me. I do use quinoa noodles and tamari sauce as they are gluten-free."

  1. This is a great recipe to use as is or to build on. Made this tonight (as written with fettucine) and my two 4 yr old sons approve! I added a photo, didn't have any green onions though. A wonderful, easy-to-make and kid friendly meal!
  2. I've had this recipe printed and saved for some time now and finally made it last night. I have a very picky 7 year old who likes peanut butter and this was a great way to hide whole wheat pasta. I went light on the onion, finely, finely chopped (hidden) and only used .5 tbsp of vinegar concerened that it would be tart. I didn't have lemon juice, so I used lime and I added extra brown sugar. All three of us liked it, picky eatter, hubby and me! Thank you! By the way, I love the name "Grannydragon!"
  3. This recipe has made it into a regular rotation in my family. I made it exactly as written, using egg noodles one time, quinoa noodles another, and spaghetti another. Don't skip the peanuts as garnish--it really makes this dish come together!! Thanks Grannydragon.
  4. My family has requested this to be made once a week!!! We all loved it. I had almost everything I needed to make it on hand and substituted what I didn't. I did use angel hair pasta, rice wine vinegar and used the honey. Served with steamed broccoli. I topped mine with cilantro and red pepper flakes and OH YUM! Thanks!
  5. My husband and I had some friends over for dinner and we thought we would give this dish a try, and it was terrific. It was also very easy to prepare. Only substitution was spaghetti noodles for the egg noodles. This recipe makes a large amount, so we had lots of leftovers, which is a very good thing!
