Spicy Sesame Peanut Noodles

The other night I made garlicky greens using Broccolini - which was delish. When I was shopping for these greens, my eyes were much bigger than my stomach and I bought four bunches of Broccolini for only two people. I ended up with about two bunches of broccolini left over.



I thought this was a great opportunity to make a new, super quick meal using leftovers. I had a pack of dry soba noodles and fresh ground peanut butter in my pantry - so I thought Peanut Noodles!


I figured I would give them a little kick of spice with some red chili flakes - hence "Spicy" Sesame Peanut Noodles. To make the peanut dressing, I used my handy-dandy Blender Bottle. This thing is so great for whisking quick dressings or taking smoothies to work. 



I decided to eat these noodles chilled for lunch at work the day after I made them - but you can enjoy these noodles warm or cold.
