Peanut Butter Noodles Recipe

peanut butter noodles
Peanut butter and pasta, the combination might seem odd to you but its delicious. Peanut butter noodles are a quick and easy meal. Some of you might remember my recipe for Thai peanut chicken, well; this is very similar only with pasta added. The original recipe didn’t call for chicken but I require meat in my pasta dishes. The chicken of course is totally optional. Another thing that is optional is the hot Chile paste, if you like a little spice in your dishes, I would highly recommend adding it. You can add extra vegetables as well. This recipe is all about the sauce; the sauce is sweet, salty and has just the right amount of kick. For the noodles, you can really use whatever type of pasta you prefer (spaghetti, linguini, vermicelli, ect.). If you are looking for a different take on your typical pasta dish, be sure to give this one a try. Enjoy.

    I have been craving an Asian noodle dish, and this one looks fantastic! Thanks for the recipe! Also, your pictures are great! I find it difficult to photograph some savory dishes in a flattering way.

    Ok I’ve never used pb with pasta or any other dish I can think of but this really looks good! Does the pb taste like pb???

    Bunny – if you are asking if it has a strong peanut butter flavor, I would say not at all. The pb, soy sauce garlic and ginger blends nicely.

    We just tried this today. Left out the chile paste because I don’t do spicy too well. It was yummy. Ate it with lettuce with peanut sauce dressing (bottled), but I suppose we could make a little extra from this recipe for the dressing too.

    again, you have not disappointed. This recipe was exactly the sauce I’ve been searching for!!
    Many many thanks for making it the most wonderful dinner and one of my new favorite meals for the rotation.

    Flavors were spot on in this dish. We enjoyed it. Double-helpings for the husband!

    I made this last night (and added about 1 tsp curry powder) and served it with chicken satay — it was AMAZING! Had it again for lunch and again! right now! After trying your Italian meatballs earlier in the week, I’m now officially hooked on your recipes.

    Thanks for the great suggestions; I look forward to exploring your site more!

    Bobby I made this last night… I was browsing your site and since this sounded like a very bad combination, I decided to give it a try! I’ll admit, I honestly did not expect it to taste very good at all. To my surprise, this is now one of my favorites, I will definitely be making this again!

    Added, I done this recipe with chicken, I did deep fried about 1 inch cubes of chicken breast with lightly seasoned flour. Delicious.
