Meals in Minutes Thai Peanut Noodles Recipe

Everyone has time to make meals in minutes instead of hours, right? One of my favorite Gooseberry Patch Cookbook's is Meals in Minutes. It is such a popular cookbook that they published a 10th anniversary edition. The cookbook is for new chefs, newlyweds, seasoned cooks, Gooseberry Patch cookbook collectors, busy mom's, dad's looking for a date night meal and more! Each page in this 222 page cookbook is chocked full of recipes and hand-dandy tips to make meal time prep look easy. Here is one of our favorite dinner time recipes. 


Thai Peanut Noodles

Instructions


1 lb shrimp (we also added 1 lb chicken breast cut into small pieces)
1 c. light Italian salad dressing, divided
8 oz pkg. angel hair pasta
2 T. crunchy peanut butter
1 T. soy sauce
1 T. honey
1 t. ground ginger (we used 2 t. fresh, chopped ginger)
1/2 t. red pepper flakes
1 carrot, peeled and shredded
1 c. green onions, chopped
1 T. sesame oil 
2 T. fresh cilantro, chopped
optional: 2/3 c. chopped peanuts

Directions


Coat shrimp and chicken with 1/2 cup salad dressing; refrigerate for 30 min. Meanwhile, prepare pasta according to pkg. directions; drain. In a bowl, whisk peanut butter with remaining salad dressing, soy sauce, honey, ginger and red pepper flakes until smooth; set aside. In a skillet over med. heat, sauté carrot, onions, chicken & shrimp in sesame oil until  chicken is cooked, about 5 min. Toss pasta, peanut butter mixture and meat together in a large serving bowl; sprinkle with cilantro and peanuts. Serves 4. 


Kitchen Notes: We doubled the ingredients for the peanut sauce-it needed it!
