Directions

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the bow tie pasta and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Cook and stir the chicken breast meat until no longer pink, 5 to 8 minutes. Remove from skillet. Cook and stir the snow peas and green onions until the pea pods are slightly softened and bright green, 3 to 4 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, and stir the black bean sauce and peanut butter into the vegetables until well combined. Stir the chicken and bow tie pasta into the vegetable mixture, and allow to heat through, 2 to 3 minutes. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

This was a quick, easy, and tasty recipe. As per the other review I would definitely suggest cutting down on the black bean sauce because it was on the salty side. One small change that I made was to add about a half cup of skim milk to the final recipe (with the heat on very low). This made a sauce a bit creamier and more sauce-like.

The dish was too salty for our tastes. Next time I will use 1/4 cup or less of the black bean sauce. Other than that, it was quick, easy and flavorful.
