Spicy Peanut Noodles

I felt like such the inspired chef last night when I came home from tennis starving…. only to find that I was out of leftovers!  I was just about to run out the door to pick something up, when it hit me—Spicy Peanut Noodles. Granted, I had no recipe and had never tried it before, but I had all the right ingredients. It came out delicious!

Ingredients:

  • Whole wheat spaghetti noodlesIMG_0951
  • Cooking oil spray
  • Garlic
  • Thinly chopped veggies (I used red bell pepper, carrots, purple cabbage, spinach and edamame)
  • Dry roasted, unsalted peanuts
  • Tofu (optional)
  • Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette from Trader Joe’s (pictured) or some other spicy peanut sauce

Directions:

  1. Cook pasta according to directions
  2. Heat oil in skillet.  Add veggies, garlic, peanuts and tofu.  Stir fry for 3-4 minutes, stirring.
  3. When pasta is done, toss everything together!  Add peanut sauce to taste.
