Looking for something make with that spaghetti in your pantry that isn’t Italian? Try these Thai Peanut Noodles! These noodles are ready in less than 15 minutes from start to finish and have all of the classic flavors of Thai cuisine. They are also a great replacement for rice on your usual stir fry nights! These flavor packed noodles are perfect served alone or along side fresh cooked pea pods or other vegetables, chicken, fish, shrimp, or my favorite, thin sliced beef. They are great hot or cold so they can also be a great addition to your take-a-long meals during the work/school week!
