I love peanut butter so much that I was so excited to make this Peanut Butter Pasta dish I've been researching about for a couple of months now. And I just made it a while ago. The result? Bzzzzt, I didn't like it. Why, you ask? I don't exactly know, but I guess it's because my tastebuds had reserved the peanut butter flavor to desserts. Or maybe I put a lot of PB, I don't know.
While I managed to finish a small plate of this specialty, my friend actually liked it. So for the sake of others' palate, I'll post the recipe and let you be the judge. And chef, of course. Anyway, it's super easy to prepare.
BTW, there's a surplus of chili flakes in the cupboard so I opted to use it again and complete the "Pad Thai" taste.
SPICY PEANUT BUTTER SPAGHETTI
1/2 lb uncooked spaghetti*
1/2 C peanut butter**
1 C chicken broth
3 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp dried chili flakes
1/2 C cooked and flaked chicken
chopped roasted peanuts to garnish**
Cook spaghetti according to package direction. Set aside.
In a saucepan over low heat, combine peanut butter, chicken broth, soy sauce and chili flakes. Stir constantly until well blended. Blend in cooked spaghetti, chicken and nuts. Serve slightly chilled.
*You can use any other pasta
**Use unsweetened peanut butter. In the absence of peanuts, you can use crunchy peanut butter instead.
