The folks over at 12 Tomatoes shared a great recipe for Spicy Peanut Noodles. If you like peanut sauce, you will love this recipe. Tim told me we could have this weekly. He just loved it, and I did too!
I did add chicken to this recipe. We stopped at Aldi, and I grabbed two packages of grilled chicken breast strips to add.
This was plenty of food for two hearty meals for us. The leftovers warmed up nicely.
Instead of slicing cabbage, I bought a bagged coleslaw kit. Yes, it had carrots, but I didn’t care. It was good, easy, and saved time! 🙂 I used about half of the package because I had no idea how much a 1/2 head of cabbage sliced into thin strips would be. Just being honest here.
We used angel hair pasta because we always have that on hand. This is also a good deal at Aldi. 🙂
Tim cannot eat very spicy food, so I only put 1 Tablespoon of Sriracha, and he said it was just right for him.
I did not take a picture of this. Sorry!

Spicy Peanut Noodles
12 ounces spaghetti
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup warm water
3 Tablespoons soy sauce
2 Tablespoons honey
2 Tablespoons Sriracha
3 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/2 Tablespoon fresh ginger, peeled and minced (I used 1 teaspoon ground ginger)
1 Tablespoon garlic, minced
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 red pepper, sliced into thin strips
3/4 cup green onions, chopped
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1/2 cup roasted and lightly salted peanuts, chopped (I did not chop them)
1/2 head cabbage, sliced into thin strips
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook spaghetti according to package instructions, or until just al dente.
In a large bowl, mix together peanut butter, water, soy sauce, honey and Sriracha until smooth. Then add lime juice, ginger, garlic and sesame oil and stir until combined.
Place pasta in a large skillet (make sure you use a LARGE skillet!) over medium-high heat and pour in the peanut butter sauce mixture. Mix together to coat noodles.
Add red peppers, cilantro, cabbage and peanuts. (This is when I added the chicken strips as well) Cook for 6-7 minutes or until veggies have softened.
Serve hot and enjoy.
