spicy thai noodles

So I've done this recipe before on The Dog Mom, but I made a vegetarian version for dinner and wanted to share it with you. Now, I didn't add any vegetables (mostly because it's the day before I go grocery shopping and I have no fresh vegetables) but also because it's hearty enough to not need a lot of filler. This, therefore, is just another version of those noodles I posted almost 6 months ago!
This time, the sauce includes OF COURSE peanut butter and soy sauce, but also some red pepper flake, sesame seeds, vegetable oil and sriracha sauce.
All shook up!
Meanwhile, we decided to let Link have the very last remains of the peanut butter in the jar. He approved of that!

And we are already in the home stretch.. now the cooked noodles are added into the mix!
Poured into the is the peanut butter soy sauce mixture and then this is heated through.
Because this sauce has oil in it, you can even go so far as to crisp up the sauce by letting it sit for a minute and sizzle on the bottom before turning- you'll get almost a fried texture to some of the noodles and that is awesome!
