Spicy noodles

So easy, so tasty, not particularly healthy though ;-)  For a once in awhile treat, these noodles are great.  It's also really easy to make a much larger batch and serve them as a side dish for a crowd.

Spicy Noodles

8 oz spaghetti, angel hair, or linguine

1/2 c natural peanut butter, chunky or smooth
1/3 c soy sauce
1/3 c apple cider vinegar
2 T sesame oil
1/4 c brown sugar
2 t crushed red pepper
3-4 cloves of garlic, crushed

1 c dry roasted peanuts, chopped coarsely
5-6 scallions, chopped

Start the pasta water and break the pasta in half before boiling.  Drain and rinse.  For the sauce, whisk the peanut butter through the garlic together in a small bowl and add to the pasta.  Add a handful of the chopped peanuts to the mixture and combine.  Garnish the top with the rest of the peanuts and the scallions.
