Betsy Dasenko, a reader from Corvallis, Oregon, submitted this recipe, which makes a terrific packed lunch, side dish, or potluck contribution. We used Skippy brand peanut butter for a smooth, slightly sweet sauce. You can use natural peanut butter if you prefer, but you may want to add a pinch of sugar so the flavors are balanced.
