1 pound whole-wheat linguine or spaghetti
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh ginger
1/2 cup soy sauce
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons sesame oil
6 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
1 teaspoon sugar
2 cups shredded cooked boneless, skinless chicken breast
2 1/2 cups frozen broccoli florets, thawed
2 carrots, shredded
1 red bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
6 scallions, white and light green parts, chopped


1. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Add pasta and cook until just tender, about 10 minutes.

2. In a blender, combine garlic, ginger, soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, peanut butter and sugar; blend until smooth.

3. Drain pasta, rinse under cold running water and drain again. Toss with sauce in a large bowl, adding more water, 1 tsp. at a time, as necessary to moisten. Add chicken, broccoli, carrots and bell pepper and toss again. Sprinkle with scallions and serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day.
