    Serves: 1 

    • 125g spaghetti
    • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
    • 1 tablespoon honey
    • 2 tablespoons tamari
    • 1 teaspoon Thai chilli sauce
    • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
    • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 1 spring onion, chopped
    • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the spaghetti and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through but is still firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
    2. Melt the peanut butter in a large microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl, 15 to 20 seconds (depending on your microwave). Whisk the honey, tamari and chilli sauce into the peanut butter, then stir in the sesame oil and ginger. Mix in the garlic and spring onions and toss with the spaghetti. Top with the sesame seeds.

    I am the recipe submitter and I just wanted to clarify some things that seem to be a tad different from what I submitted. I use the sweet red thai chili sauce in my version as well as fresh grated ginger (not dried ground). Also, it's really an integral step, is to let everything sit refrigerated for a couple of hours before eating - this is really an important step that you won't regret. I wanted to mention that one review indicated that tamari is actually just soy sauce and I want to clarify. Although tamari is a type of soy, it is not the same as regular old soy sauce. The tamari adds a much deeper, richer, more authentic flavor to the noodles. The only other thing worth mentioning is that I toast my sesame seeds - I love them this way! Happy eating!  -  25 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Loved this recipe and would definately make it again... but had a little difficulty with the ingredient list. After spending way too much time searching the isles of the local Asian market, (and then finally giving up and going on-line) - I learned that tamari is soy sauce. Also, the recipe reads 1/2 (8oz) package of spaghetti - I think it should read just 8oz of spaghetti. But otherwise a really great recipe!!!  -  10 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I'm kind of tough to please, which is why I'm giving this recipe only four stars (I'd give it 4.5 if I could). This was very easy to make, and I think I could probably eat it just about every day, which says a lot for me. Next time I'd probably add a little more chili sauce to give it more zing.  -  22 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
