Spaghetti with Peanut Sauce

Ingredients:

1 lb whole wheat spaghetti (or even better, soba noodles)

6 tablespoons peanut oil, divided up

8 tablespoons creamy peanut butter (ideally the kind where the oil separate out)

8 tablespoons soy sauce

4 teaspoons (not tbsp) sesame oil

4 tablespoons light brown sugar

2 diced, sauteed zucchini or other vegetable

optional — peanuts, sesame seeds

 

Cook your pasta as directed, typically 7 minutes for 1 lb of ww spaghetti.  Use plenty of water to keep it from becoming too starchy, ideally a large pasta pot filled almost to the top.  Mix in 2 tablespoons peanut oil.

 

In a medium bowl, whisk together 4 tablespoons peanut oil, 8 tablespoons peanut butter, 8 tablespoons soy sauce, 4 teaspoons sesame oil and 4 tablespoons brown sugar.

 

Offer your kids a choice of ingredients — I offer pasta, sauce, zucchini, peanuts and sesames.
