  • 10 Ounces spiral or rotini pasta
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup water or vegetable stock
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons white-wine vinegar or rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey or rice syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 1/2 cup frozen green peas, thawed

1. Begin cooking the pasta

2. Combine the remaining ingredients, except for the peas in a blender or food processor fitted with a steel blade. Process until smooth

3. When the pasta is just about done, toss the peas in to warm them, then drain and transfer them to a large serving bowl. Add the sauce and toss well.

Helpful tip: The peanut butter sauce thickens as it stands. Mix in more water if the dish sits for a while before serving, or before serving leftovers the next day.
