Thai Peanut Noodles

One of the simplest ways to enjoy Thai Peanut Sauce is over a pile of hearty pasta. I wasn’t able to make it to the store that sold soba noodles (buckwheat pasta) so I used 100% whole wheat. It’s not quite the same but delicious in it’s own right. I fancied up the dish by adding a few sesame seeds and fresh green onion. The peanut sauce was already so nutty and flavorful that the sesame didn’t end up making *that* big of a difference but the green onions added a nice freshness that I wouldn’t want to go without. This is a great side dish or if you just want something quick and filling for dinner!

NOTE: I ate leftovers of this today for lunch and found that it soaks up all of the sauce while refrigerated and ends up being a little dry. For that reason, I would suggest only mixing enough cooked pasta and sauce for what you will eat right then. Store the rest of the cooked pasta in a container then combine with sauce just prior to reheating. Easy, delicious and filling!
