"An easy sauce, tossed with soba noodles (linguini or spaghetti can be substituted), and garnished with with sesame seeds and scallions. This is a great side dish, warm or cold. And, ingredients like coconut milk, fresh ginger, and siracha are all available in most grocery stores these days in the Asian aisle. It is quick and easy to prepare ... and, great for a potluck, BBQ, picnic, take to work, or any night of the week. Great to make ahead as well."

Step 1

Sauce ... Add the peanut butter, coconut milk, ginger, garlic, brown sugar, lime juice, siracha, soy sauce, and sesame oil, to a blender. Mix well by pulsing until well combined. Add water, a little at a time until you get a nice smooth consistency; finish by adding the cilantro and pulse until it is completely mixed. Add the sauce to a small bowl or a tupperware type of container and refrigerate at least 1 hour before using.

Step 2

Note: I add only half of the siracha to start and taste after all the ingredients are added and mixed through ... you can always add more, but you can't take any away. Add until you get the flavor you like.

Step 3

Noodles ... Cook the noodles or pasta according to package directions. Remove from the heat, drain, and return to the pot to dry the noodles before adding the sauce. You don't want a wet noodles dish.

Step 4

Finish ... Add the pasta to a serving bowl along with the peanut sauce (as much as you like), scallions, and sesame seeds, and toss to combine.

Step 5

Serve and ENJOY! It is such an easy and quick sauce to prepare. Obviously, I like to pair this with other Asian dishes, but it's really good with just about anything.

Lovely peanut taste with a hint of heat. I did omit the cilantro as we are not big fans of the taste of it and I forgot to add the water otherwise as per recipe using soba noodles (6 ounces for 3 of us). Thank you Kchurchill5 made for Alphabet Soup tag game.
