Ingredients: 1 package House Foods Tofu Shirataki, Spaghetti Shape 1 tbsp. plus 1 tsp. reduced-fat peanut butter, room temperature 2 tbsp. light soymilk 2 tbsp. chopped scallions 1/2 tbsp. light or low-sodium soy sauce 1/2 tsp. sesame seeds 1/8 tsp. minced garlic 1 no-calorie sweetener packet (like Splenda) Optional: salt
Directions: Rinse and drain noodles well. Pat VERY dry with paper towels. Place noodles in a microwave-safe bowl, and microwave for 1 minute. Drain excess liquid from noodles, and pat them again until thoroughly dry (the more dry the better!). Cut noodles into spaghetti-length pieces. Set aside. In a separate small dish, combine peanut butter, soymilk, soy sauce, sesame seeds, garlic and sweetener. Mix well. Feel free to season this sauce to taste with salt. Pour sauce over noodles. Mix thoroughly. Top with chopped scallions and mix again. Allow to chill in the fridge. Then enjoy! MAKES 1 SERVING

Cold Sesame Noodles, Average
Oh, please. Don't tell us you're surprised to see crazy-high nutritionals associated with cold sesame noodles. Pasta plus peanut butter plus sesame oil (and seeds!) pretty much says it all. But they do taste really goooood. Rumor has it, this dish was created by a peanut farmer who accidentally spilled soy sauce on his spaghetti. In a desperate attempt to mask the saltiness of his family's dinner, he quickly stirred in spoonfuls of peanut butter. Turns out they loved it. OK, that was completely made up (and really dumb -- but there's little-to-no info available about the history of these irresistible things!).
