Spicy Peanut Noodles

Lynn demonstrates how to make Spicy Peanut Noodles. This is a great dinner or lunch.  Serves 6


  • 8 ounces linguine
  • 1/3 cup low-fat creamy peanut butter
  • 2 Tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1-1/2 Tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1-2 teaspoons chile paste with garlic*
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • 1 medium size red pepper, cut into thin strips
  • ¾ cup chopped seeded cucumber
  • 3 green onions, sliced diagonally into 1/4 " pieces (about ¼ cup)
  • 2 Tablespoons cilantro
  • 4 lime wedges, optional

*For milder noodles, start with 1 teaspoon chile paste.  If you want more spice, add a dab at a time, tasting as you go.

Cook linguine according to package directions.

Meanwhile, combine peanut butter, ¼ cup water, soy sauce, vinegar, chile paste and sugar in a large bowl; whisk until blended.  If sauce seems too thick, thin it with a little water; it should have the consistency of cream.

Add linguine, bell pepper, cucumber and green onions, and toss well.

Sprinkle with cilantro and serve with lime wedges, if desired.
