Sesame Noodles from Laurie (March 16, 2001)

Hi there,

Kate asked for this recipe so I thought I would send it out for the recipe exchange. It is from Good Housekeeping about 5 years ago. I have made this several times and it is very good. It does make a lot but leftovers are just as good as the first day you make them. We all love peanut butter so I thought we would like this. Ed especially loves peanut butter, in fact it used to be one of the nicknames I had for him because one of his favorite things to do was get a spoon and grab a spoonfull of peanut butter to eat. (He probably still does this!!) The kids and I have been known to do this when we are hungry and need a quick snack. Anyway, here's the recipe:

Sesame noodles salad

1 16-ounce package linguine
1/2 cup salted peanuts
2 green onions
1/2 cup creamy p-nut butter
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup salad oil
2 tblspn sesame oil
2 tblspn cayenne pepper sauce
1 tblspn sugar
1/2 tspn crushed red pepper

30 minutes before serving or early in day:
1. In sauce pot, prepare linguine as label directs, drain, return to pan. Coarsely chop p-nuts and slice green onions.
2. In med. bowl, with wire whisk or fork, mix p-nut butter, soy sauce, salad oil, sesame oil, cayenne pepper sauce, sugar, and 1/4 cup hot water until blended. Add p-nut sauce to noodles in pan; toss to coat.
3. Serve warm, or refrigerate to serve chilled later. To serve, sprinkle noodles with chopped p-nuts, sliced green onions, and crushed red pepper.
If linguine mixture is refrigerated, it may become dry. Stir in about 1/4 cup hot water or enough just until mixture is moist and creamy. Makes 4 main dish servings or 8 accompaniment servings.

Now I'm hungry for these noodles. I call them peanut butter noodles because you can really taste the peanut butter in them. They are spicy so adjust the recipe if you don't like spicy foods. Let me know what you think of them if you decide to try them.

love, Laurie
