natural peanut butter

light soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons
cooked egg noodles
peeled, seeded, and julienned cucumber
fresh cilantro leaves
This is a really easy and tasty dish! I cooked the recipe for 8 servings, but only used 1 pound, not 2, of pasta. I guess the sauce would be a bit more dispersed over more pasta, but I really liked it a bit more intense. I also used wholewheat pasta instead of egg, and threw in some green onions and just a touch of Thai chili sauce. The wholewheat pasta added a nice earthiness. The only other changes I made was to use chunky Jiff peanut butter (so killed sugar) and a couple Tablespoons more soy sauce. This will be a regular in my house!
I made this a couple nights ago and noone would touch it. This was a waste of time and ingredients. I made this exactly according to the recipe.
I made this for a potluck at work and received rave reviews. I made a double batch of the recipe to serve over 20. I poached 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts and shredded them, then added them to the final salad. I also added two more tablespoons of black tea to the peanut butter to cut the peanut flavor even further. This recipe works well with a peanut butter that is not sweetened. If you don't like Thai flavor combinations, this may not be for you. I love peanut sauces, and love the fact that this recipe is relatively inexpensive to make. I will absolutely be making it again.
I made this for a Halloween potluck; it was very well received. I included 1 cup of chopped green onions to garnish and balance out the cilantro flavour.
Easy dish to make. I cut the egg noodles to 1 lb and added 1 lb of cooked shrimp. Perfect hot weather meal.
Excellent. Great dish for summer.
Good recipe! We used regular spaghetti instead of the egg noodles - and turned out great.
I'm sure glad I had all the ingredients on hand. I'd hate to think I made a special trip to the store for these results - I followed the recipe to a tee. It tastes like straight peanut butter.
