Oh my goodness. SO. GOOD.
Maybe it’s because I’ve grown up in an Italian-American household, but I love pasta. Love it. And I use every opportunity I can get to make it and eat it. Out of other food? I make pasta. Too little time to cook? I make pasta.
But all that pasta can get old. Well. Not old, exactly, but I really need to mix it up sometimes! New flavors! New tastes! And how better to do that than with a different noodle dish?! It’s like pasta, only better.
Noodles are quick and easy to make no matter what you put on them or what kind of noodles they are. My take on thai peanut satay noodles are EASY, QUICK, and have all the taste, flavor, an intrigue that a California girl looks for!
Plus, they’re vegetarian, vegan, and all around pretty clean and healthy food! (Although, that being said, you could easily add meat. I’d add chicken… or tofu… haha.)
Enjoy these the next time you’re craving all the ease and comfort of a plate of pasta and all the excitement of a brand new dish with exciting flavors. :)

Thai Peanut Satay Noodles
Ingredients - Pad Thai noodles (100% rice noodles), chives, red onion, black sesame seeds, roasted unsalted peanuts, toasted sesame oil, peanut sauce (I used Thai Kitchen)
Directions- Boil water. While waiting for water to boil, chop onion, red pepper, chives, and peanuts. Sautee onion and red pepper on low in the toasted sesame oil until somewhat soft. Add peanuts and black sesame seeds. When the water boils, cook noodles for 3-4 minutes or until cooked through but not mushy. Strain over the sink and rinse with COLD water and drain. Add noodles to the saute pan. Add peanut sauce, to taste, and mix well. Toss in chives. Serve right away! :)
Enjoy! And let me know how it goes! :)
