This was really good and very easy and fast. I used crunchy peanut butter, which gave it a nice texture. I do think that I would add more chili sauce next time, as the spiciness got lost when the sauce was combined with the noodles & veggies. I used somen noodles (really thin Japanese noodles) and threw the veggies in the water at the same time, and it only took 3 minutes to cook.
