Peanut Sesame Noodles

Adapted from Gourmet Cookbook

Serves 4 as a main dish. Or 3 if one of you is Jon.


3/4 pound of whole wheat spaghetti (1 box)

4 scallions, thinly sliced

3 tbsp toasted sesame seeds

1 lb pea pods, lightly steamed


1/2 cup crunchy natural peanut butter

2 tbsp red wine vinegar

2 tbsp fresh ginger, peeled and chopped

2 small cloves of garlic, chopped

1/4 cup soy sauce

2 tsp honey

1 1/2 tbsp toasted sesame oil

1/3 cup warm water

1 tsp red pepper flakes


Puree all of the sauce ingredients in a food processor or blender.

Cook the pasta in 6-8 quarts of boiling water (salted) until tender.

Mix a serving of pasta with as many pea pods as you’d like and with 1/4 of the sauce. Garnish each serving with scallions and sesame seeds.

Store leftover sauce and pasta separately.

I am going to try a more Asian noodle next time (this called for linguine)
