Peanut Butter Pasta

Happy dinner!

My kitchen helpers would rather eat cheese and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for every meal. As a matter of fact Maurene will answer 'cheese!' every time you ask her what she would like to eat. The only change to that is when she wakes up wanting a bowl of cereal. A picky child can break a mother's heart.

The reason I started cooking with Maurene was to help expand her palate, that and she would not take no for an answer. She loves to help. After a year and a half in the kitchen she is truly a good helper. 

Mo is so often my companion these days. This meal was no exception. She stirred the sauce while I gathered the ingredients. Another simple meal but one that made us all happy. I did not follow a recipe this time. A few tablespoons of peanut butter, a tablespoon of oil, and a teaspoon of soy sauce. A little minced garlic topped the sauce up and made it yummy. Mo stirred and stirred while I cooked the pasta.

  1. Looks good, have to give it a try someday.

  2. I cannot comprehend how this would be good, but we'll have to give it a try. Is it plain, natural peanut butter or regular kind that's sweetened? Have you tried it without the soy sauce or garlic? I've mixed peanut butter into oatmeal but never thought of putting it on pasta.

  3. The original recipe called for many more ingredients but I found that we did not need them. Do a search for peanut butter noodles on our site and you can see the original recipe.
    We like creamy and natural is better but not needed. Just try it!

  4. I've never seen this before. Neat idea!

  5. What a great way to get them to try something new!

  6. I wonder if my girls would like this... only one way to find out!
