Peanut Butter Noodles

February 03, 2016
Yes, I know, these have to got to be the most boring looking noodles ever. Don't let them fool you. They are delicious.  

Also, tough to photograph. I should of really added some veggies or something in them to add some color.  But, each member of the family eats them differently.  Some like them plain, some add veggies and honestly,I didn't want to add veggies to the pot, photograph it, then, have to pick them out for certain members of the family.  Or..have certain members of the family complain that they had to pick out the vegetables.  Life made a bit easier.


Anywhoo, these are a great weeknight meal.  Really simple with a peanut butter taste with an Asian touch added it. 
You can have these with just the peanut butter sauce or add broccoli, carrots, peppers or sesame seeds. Go a little crazy with your noodles! 

{side note: these are also referred to as sesame noodles, but, we call them peanut butter noodles, we are just weird like that :)
