This simple, Asian-inspired pasta toss contains less fat and sodium than similar take-out fare without sacrificing its flavor. For added taste, toast the sesame seeds first.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain, reserving 2 tablespoons cooking liquid.

Step 2

Combine broth, peanut butter, 1 1/2 tablespoons sesame seeds, and next 5 ingredients (through hot pepper sauce).

Step 3

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the chicken with salt. Add chicken to pan; sauté 3 minutes. Add carrots and onions; sauté 2 minutes or until chicken is done. Stir in broth mixture.

Step 4

Add reserved cooking liquid and pasta to pan, tossing to coat. Top with remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons sesame seeds; serve immediately.

Made this for the kids when my husband was out of town... we all considered it sort of blah and not worth making again.

A weeknight favorite. I like to throw in broccoli, too, and use cayenne instead of Tabasco. We sometimes use rice noodles and rice vinegar as well.
