Choose your own adventure with these noodles! They're delicious with peanut butter and tahini alike. Plus, you can use whatever frozen vegetables you have on hand and finish the dish off with any herbs still thriving in your garden or hanging out in your crisper.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add pasta and cook according to package directions. Place frozen vegetables in a large colander and set in the sink. After reserving 1 cup of the cooking water, pour the pasta into the colander (over the vegetables) to drain.

  • Meanwhile, whisk peanut butter (or tahini), soy sauce, lemon juice, garlic, honey and crushed red pepper in a large bowl.

  • Whisk 1/2 cup of the reserved cooking water into the sauce until smooth. Add the pasta and vegetables and toss to coat. (If the mixture seems dry, add more of the reserved cooking water to reach desired consistency.) Top with peanuts (or sesame seeds) and chives (and/or cilantro). Drizzle with sesame oil before serving.
