Spicy Peanut Noodles

Adapted from Simple Vegetarian Pleasures by Jeanne Lemlin. New York, NY: HarperCollins Publishers, 1998.

This is delicious and easy. And everyone in my house will eat it. Always a plus.

1/4 cup natural peanut butter (Skippy will work in a pinch)
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 tbsp. water
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup oriental sesame oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp. grated fresh ginger root
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
6 scallions, thinly sliced
1 pound spaghetti or soba noodles

Mix the peanut butter and soy sauce in a small saucepan until smooth. Stir in remaining ingredients, reserve some scallions for garnish. Warm over low heat.

Cook the spaghetti, drain and mix with sauce and garnish with remaining scallions.
