I made this recipe for a teacher appreciation luncheon this week and it was really good. Next time I'm going to use more of the Oriental Hot Chili Garlic sauce. It was flavorful with 1 tsp of it and not the least bit "hot".
Enjoy

Oops! I left out the ginger. See corrected recipe in next post. I'm deleting the incorrect one.

Peanutty Noodles -- 6 pts

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 10 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Lowfat Pasta
Picnic Food TNT


Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 carrots -- peeled
1 tablespoon vegetable oil -- divided
2 teaspoons fresh ginger -- peeled and grated
3 cloves garlic -- minced
1 cup fat-free less sodium chicken broth -- I use Swanson
1/2 cup natural-style peanut butter -- I use regular
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
3 tablespoons rice or white wine vinegar
1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce like Lee Kum Kee -- (I'll try up to 1 T for added zip)
1/4 teaspoon salt
cooking spray
2 cups red bell pepper strips
1 pound snow peas -- trimmed
1 pound linguine -- cooked and still hot
1/2 cup fresh cilantro -- chopped

Using a vegetable peeler, shave the carrots lengthwise into strips and set aside.

(I only had baby carrots and carrot "chips". I used the chips and pre-boiled for 5 mins.)

Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. (I used a medium non-stick pan.)

Add the ginger and minced garlic. (I use a rounded tablespoon of garlic-ginger stir-fry blend that comes in a jar instead.) Saute for 30 seconds.

Add Chicken broth and next 5 ingredients (through salt) ; stir until well-blended. Reduce heat, and simmer 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and keep warm.


Over medium-high, heat 2 teaspoons of oil in a large, non-stick skillet that has been coated with cooking spray. Add bell peppers and sno peas; saute 5 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat.

Combine carrot, peanut butter mixture, vegetable mixture and linguine in a large bowl; toss well.

Sprinkle with cilantro. ( I prefer Italian parsley.)

Serving Ideas : Serve warm or at room temperature. Add cooked shrimp or chicken to make a delicious main dish.

NOTES : I like to sprinkle warm water on 1 cup portions and reheat it in the microwave. I made a delicious, filling picnic supper for myself by adding cut-up grilled chicken breast (3oz) and a cut-up, grilled portabella mushroom to 1 cup of these peanutty noodles. (For those of you following Weight Watchers, this was a 9 point dinner)
