Peanut Noodles-Issue #20

You wouldn't think peanut butter would go with spaghetti, but it does beautifully...and it tastes delicious!

You will need:
3/4 lb. spaghetti, cooked
1/2 cup, plus 1 tbs. sesame oil
1 bell pepper
2 small squash or zucchini
1 stalk green onion
1 handful snow peas
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 soy sauce
2 cups orange juice
1 tbs. corn starch
1/3 cup chopped peanuts

Cook spaghetti according to package directions, drain and set aside.  Cut vegetables in to thin strips and saute with crushed garlic in 1 tbs. of sesame oil.
In a glass bowl, mix together remaining 1/2 cup sesame oil, cornstarch, orange juice, peanut butter, and soy sauce.
Pour sauce over vegetables and bring to a boil.  Remove from heat, pour over noodles, and toss until noodles are coated.  Top with chopped peanuts and serve.
