Thai Noodles (Mock Pad Thai)

The New Cafe has a Food forum. I found this recipe in the “Half an hour and just one pot” topic.

“This is so easy, and wonderful for summer–sort of an oriental pasta salad. None of the quantities need to be exact–add or subtract to your taste. 

Linguini or spaghetti noodles 
1 can of coconut milk 
1/2 to 1 cup of peanut butter 
hot pepper flakes (however much you like) 
garlic or garlic powder 
chopped green onions 
1 bunch of cilantro (chopped) 
bean spouts 
Chopped peanuts 
Sesame oil (just a little–1/2 teaspoon or so) 
Cook the spaghetti and let the noodles start cooling. Make the sauce by warming the coconut milk and peanut butter in a pan–stir it, it will thicken to the consistency of pudding. Add the garlic and soy to your taste. Let it cool a bit. 
Toss the pasta and the sauce together then add the vegetables. Add other stuff you like, like julienned peppers or pea pods.”
Tried this and we both liked it. Need to use closer to 1/2 than 1 cup of PB for my particular taste.
