Sesame Peanut Noodles

I dug my Take out Tonight cookbook from Weight Watchers the other night and started searching for something I could make that wouldn't be killing my diet! I love peanut butter and have never had this type of dish but have always wanted to try it.

Chris came to our place for the night last night and he tried this out too....and loved it! It was really good and I will definitely make it again. It doesn't hurt that it is a healthy recipe!

Sesame Peanut Noodles
WW Take out Tonight

6 oz. dry spaghetti noodles
1/3 cup reduced fat peanut butter
1/2 cup water
3 Tablespoons ketchup
3 Tablespoons Hoisin Sauce
2 Tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
2 Tablespoons packed light brown sugar
1 Tablespoon rice vinegar
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 scallions (thinly sliced)

Note: I added some cooked unbreaded chicken breast tenders to this dish to add some protein. If your counting points, please allow for what chicken you add to the dish.

Cook pasta according to directions. Let cool 10 minutes.

Mix peanut butter thru sesame oil together in saucepan and heat until just warmed and well combined. Pour over noodles and sprinkle with scallions.

1/3 cup equals one serving
WW Points: 4

Never would have expected the ketchup in this recipe! Looks great!

This is my kind of treat! Love noodle salads especially with these flavors. Thanks for the recipe.

Peanut butter!! Looks really good! I'm watching my diet too, I'll give this a go!

Barbara Bakes said...

I would love it, but did Grumpy!

HoneyB said...

Michelle, the ketchup did turn me off when I read the ingredient list, but I went ahead and made it anyway and am so glad that I did! It is in no way bad!

Barbara, Grumpy ate leftover Dill Pickle Meatloaf (which I never got a photo of so no blog about that yet!). I'm sure if there was nothing else in the house he would have at least tried it. As it was, he didn't get any and won't get any either! Not this time around anyway!

This sounds amazing! I think I'm going to make this tonight ... adding the chicken like you did and maybe some peanuts and water chestnuts ... This looks like a nice "base" to add other things to. YUM!

Flourchild said...

After that TWD Devils cake weight watchers would be a good thing! Your pasta looks wonderful. Im excited to make the Caramel Crunch Bars....Im kind of sick of sweets but these look rather tasty!

Love big, fat noodles like that! The peanut butter and sesame go so well together.

I just wanted to stop by and say hi! I stumbled across your blog through a couple other blogs I follow. I love all your post and pictures!

Aggie said...

Oh, yummy looking noodles!! I love recipes like these!

Sara said...

Those sound so good! They sound kind of similar to the Thai Peanut Noodles that Kate makes, which I also love, so I'll have to try these ones. Mmmm...kinda craving them right now. Wanna bring me dinner? ;)

Lisa said...

noble pig said...

Elyse said...

Like you, I'm a huge peanut butter fan, and this recipe sounds super exciting. Only wish I had had time to read it earlier in the day so I could have made it for dinner! Oh well, there's always tomorrow night :)

gail said...

oooh! what's not to like!! gorgeous photo too :)

Tangled Noodle said...

This looks delicious but I wonder if I can substitute almond, cashew or another nut butter for peanut? I have a bit of an intolerance to them.

Peter M said...

These noodles do look freaky'good...slurp!

cakewardrobe said...

I love peanut noodles! They're so simple but filling and delicious!

gaga said...

I've never seen ketchup as an ingredient in peanut noodles. Sounds intriguing, maybe I'll add a few the next time I make them.

Poddys said...

The only problem I can see is that this small portion wouldn't be enough to satisfy me. Once I get the taste of sate and noodles, I just want to keep eating. The temptation is too much.

I am so in love with peanut sauce! This looks easy and wonderful!

Mary Ellen said...

I love peanut butter noodles. this sounds like a great recipe, it just might be lunch tomorrow! TFS

Sandra Shaffer said...

Anytime I see sesame oil and peanut butter together, I know it's a great tasting dish! So tasty! Way better than take out too!
