Spicy Thai Noodles
Sauces made with heavy creams are loaded with calories and saturated fat. This recipe uses a peanut sauce that has all the richness of a cream sauce but with heart-healthy fats instead. Be careful--if using a store-bought sauce, check the ingredients list for added sugars!
Tip: If you like, substitute 3 ounces dried multi-grain spaghetti for the rice noodles. Cook according to package directions, reserving 1/3 cup of the cooking water.
