Peanut Sesame Noodles

I have made peanut noodles and sesame noodles, so now I have finally made peanut sesame noodles!  I adapted this peanut sesame noodles recipe from Rachel Ray's sesame noodle recipe This is another great summer time recipe since you could serve this warm, at room temperature, or cold.  It tastes great either way and I know because I have tried it all.  Also if you don't have agave, you could substitute 2 - 3 teaspoons white sugar instead or leave it completely out if you prefer a more salty taste.  I love the simplicity of this dish and it is great as a side dish or for a quick meal.  Enjoy!

Peanut Sesame Noodles

1 tablespoon peanut butter
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
1 – 2 teaspoons agave nectar
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

In a small bowl, whisk together peanut butter, soy sauce, vegetable oil, sesame oil, agave and cayenne pepper. 

Add noodles and toss to coat.  Sprinkle with sesame seeds and chopped scallion.

Great served at room temperature, cold or warmed.
