Peanut Sesame Noodles

This is a recipe I've adapted from The Pioneer Woman.
She called her recipe Simple Sesame Noodles.
You may look it up if you'd like, the changes I made were subtle.
You could add chicken to this dish for a more "manly" meal,
but mine was working, so I didn't need to worry about his needs:)
I added 1 T. peanut butter to the sauce
and chopped peanuts as a garnish.
Both could be left out if you have nut allergies to consider.
On with it...
Peanut Sesame Noodles

12 oz, fluid thin noodles, cooked and drained (angel hair pasta is what I used)
1/4 c. soy sauce
2 T. sugar
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 T. rice vinegar
3 T. pure sesame oil
2 T. sweet chili sauce (this will still have some heat to it, despite the word "sweet")
6 T. canola oil
2 T. hot water
1 T. creamy peanut butter
4 green onions, sliced thin, to garnish
1/4 c. dry roasted peanuts to garnish

Whisk all ingredients (except noodles, green onions and peanut butter) together in a bowl. Taste and adjust ingredients as needed.
Pour sauce over hot noodles and toss to coat.
Sprinkle with green onions and peanuts, toss.

Bon Appetit!
