"Been doing a clean up of cookbooks and cooking magazines and came across some that had post it notes sticking out so looked at the recipes and some we had tried and others were listed as to try. This one was a to try, so though I would post it here for easier access, though do plan on making some changes when I do make it and will make changes when that happens."

So easy and so good! The sauce is very flavorful, though I admit to using twice the ginger! I did have to thin the sauce a little bit, but these are some noodles we'll be having again and again. Once you make it the first time, you won't need a recipe the next. Thanks so much for sharing this keeper!

Delicious and easy to make. I thought the sauce was going to be too thick, but once it hit the noodles it was just perfect. I sprinkled a few peanuts on top for garnish. 5 stars from all diners!

I cut recipe in down in 4th. Made just enough for a great, quick lunch. I added a small handful of dry roasted peanuts. I think some baby cooked shrimp would be good, added to the sauce.

These peanut noodles were the simplest, tastiest, silkiest noodles ever! Salty and just sweet enough. I used spaghetti noodles and sprinkled the finished dish with more scallions and pepper flakes. I will be making this over and over. Thanks, Pat, this one's a keeper for sure!

Simple, easy and so delicious. Made for an easy meal for us tonight. I used hokkein noodles and a few snow peas from the garden and garnished with some chopped cashews. Really nice and tasty recipe.
