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.

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons Asian toasted sesame oil
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon dried hot red pepper flakes or a splash of the hot sauce or chili paste of your choice

For noodles
3/4 lb dried soba nooodles (dried linguine fini or spaghetti will work in a pinch)
4 scallions, thinly sliced
