Peanut butter noodles, aka sesame noodles, have been devoured in our house for years….
People ask me for this recipe all the time, as it really is yummy.

Cold Peanut Butter Noodles

This is a combination of several recipes that I have used and have fine tuned to get the best sauce. Serve over cold pasta (as in Cold Sesame Noodles from a chinese food place) but I like shape, instead of the long strands. Good garnishes are thin strips of cucumber, and / or carrot, and sesame seeds.

2/3 cup creamy peanut butter (I use a natural one, with no sugar added)
3 Tbsp sesame oil
4 Tbsp soy sauce
2 Tbsp honey
4 Tbsp. rice wine vinegar
1 Tbsp freshly grated ginger
1 large clove garlic, minced

Mix everything together (add 1 thing at a time and mix well) and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving to allow the flavors to blend.

Serve over cold noodles (cook then rinse in cold water to remove starches). Long strands, like linguini, are good, but shapes are easier for kids to manage.

Top with strips of veggies- cucumber, carrots, red pepper, etc. Garnish with sesame seeds.

Keeps in the fridge for at least 2 weeks.
Makes enough for about 1 pound of pasta.
