Peanutty Noodles

Prep time 12 mins
Cook time 12 mins
Yield 5 servings (serving size: 1 1/3 cups)
This recipe calls for whole wheat spaghetti noodles instead of the extra-long Chinese noodles traditionally eaten with this dish. However, the rest of the ingredients are distinctly Asian. Peanut sauce can be found in the Asian section of the supermarket or at your local Asian market.

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces uncooked whole wheat spaghetti
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh bean sprouts
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 (3 1/4-ounce) package thinly sliced shiitake mushrooms (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1/4 pound snow peas, trimmed
  • 1/2 cup diagonally cut carrot
  • 1 teaspoon minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 1/4 cup peanuts, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup vegetable broth
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons peanut sauce (such as House of Tsang)
