I had one of the most delicious pasta dishes yesterday, and you can be eating the same thing exactly 20 minutes from now if you are fortunate enough to have the following in your pantry: 16 oz pasta, garlic, sugar, oil, rice vinegar, sesame oil, chili sauce, peanut butter, and sesame seeds.
I visited Buenos Aires’ Barrio China just last week and still had a decent stockpile of the Asian cooking staples, so this was easy for me. Any Asian market and most grocery stores in the states will have your missing ingredients. Thus no excuse remains for this not to be tomorrow’s dinner.
Two steps to the recipe, adapted from one found at Allrecipes.
- Make Pasta, preferably something stringy like spaghetti.
- Heat everything else together on a stove and mix with the pasta.
The end result is a smooth, think, peanuty, Asian noodle dinner. It fed two hungry Asian food lovers (that’s Asian-food lovers, not Asian food-lovers. There was only one of those here), so it could probably feed a family of four with an appropriate side dish.
