Peanut Butter Noodles #SundaySupper

Slurping her noodles.

With only two weeks left until my wedding, life is pretty busy around here. But we still took time to sign the girls up for the Hy-Vee Mile at a Time Marathon Club. They have 29 weeks to run 25 miles and their final run happens during my running of the Kansas Half Marathon. I am also running a half marathon in November and every time I leave for a training run the girls beg to run with me. The Mile at a Time Marathon Club is how they can run too.

When we signed up we also chatted with the dietitian about nutrition and proper fuel for a race. She recommends whole grains, lots of fruits and vegetables, and lean meats. This simple meal we planned for #SundaySupper meets all of those recommendations.

Sometimes whole grain pasta is a harder sell for picky eaters because of the texture. Cooking it well and pairing it with a full-flavored sauce makes it quite yummy. It also helps that the peanut butter covers the color of the noodle so no one knows what kind we are serving.

Peanut Butter Noodles
  • 2 oz whole wheat spaghetti
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
Cook noodles according to directions. Drain and add pasta plus remaining ingredients to a medium bowl and toss together. Eat immediately. They taste amazing with chicken thighs sprinkled with ginger, powdered garlic, and salt and pepper. Add a bag of broccoli, carrot, and cauliflower mix with the same seasoning and your meal is complete.
