Spicy Chinese Peanut Noodles

I’ve been on an Asian kick recently and it all started with this recipe. When Lauren and I went to New York over the summer we went to Wa Jael; a restaurant that had some of the best Chinese noodles and General Tso’s chicken that we’ve ever tried. Since then, we’ve been looking for a good noodle recipe to try.

I saw a picture for these noodles on Pinterest (Lauren told me I would be hooked on Pinterest) and the recipe came from www.epicurious.com. I made a few changes from the original, Epicurious.com has tomato paste as an ingredient and I changed it to chili paste. I also added a tbs of sriracha and instead of crunchy peanut butter we used creamy.

I hope you like these as much as we did!
