Ya, this one is goooood.
My friend brought me a plate of something the other day and asked if I could make a “healthy” version. She got it at the cafeteria where she works.
I never even got to try it. I just looked at what was in it, took a sniff, and got to work.
I still don’t know if I came close or not, but she sure did love my version. I did too. I’ll make this one again and again. Seriously yummy!
I should mention here that I love strong flavors. So the peanut sauce is heave on flavor. If you prefer a milder flavor, add an extra 1/4 cup of milk to the sauce and go light when pouring it on. You should taste the sauce before stirring it into the pasta.
