Peanutty Noodles

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.
