“Peanutty” Noodles with veggies

Yesterday I picked up my fresh big box of CSA veggies. YUM. Best day of the week (well, best work day…), but still..fun day to get creative with dishes. I decided to use our veggies to make one of our favorites for dinner. I love this recipe because I basically can use any veggies mixed with this peanutty sauce and noodles to make a filling, easy peasy dinner (and lunch leftovers as needed!). This week I used some fresh green, red, and yellow peppers and green onions from this week’s CSA and tomatoes, green beans, and a little eggplant left over from last week.

Green onionsLike really? Look at these things! Giants!

First,  cut up a bunch of the veggies and sauteed along with the green onion and a splash of olive oil.

Cooked veggies

As they were cooking, in a separate pan I boiled water and threw in just about 8 ounces of whole wheat spaghetti.


About this time the veggies were just about cooked so I then mix together all of the ingredients in to make the peanutty sauce. Although I have an actual recipe for it sometimes when I’m feeling lazy I just kind of eyeball it and taste it as I go along. Typically I use natural peanut butter, but tonight we were all out so I subbed in Almond butter and it was delicious!


After the spaghetti is cooked I drained the spaghetti and mix together the veggies with the sauce.
