Instructions

  • In a large pot, cook pasta to al dente. Drain in COLD water and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together peanut butter (slightly melted in microwave), soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, hot sauce and red pepper flakes.
  • In a large bowl combine veggies and noodles. Pour sauce over mixture and toss until well coated.

Notes

This dish is served cold, which is why the spaghetti is rinsed in cold water. This stops the cooking process and cools the noodles off.
