Yummy yummy noodles!!

I swear I’m not turning into a vegetarian. But I’ve been craving peanut buttery noodles…so I had to make these when I saw them! Mm…delicious. Try it. I stuffed my face and am uncomfortably full but still want more. It’s super easy to make and takes no time at all. I used half the recipe for the dressing and ~1/2 box of whole wheat spaghetti noodles and didn’t find I needed any more dressing.
