Warm Sesame Noodles with Ginger and Snow Peas

I made this as a quick lunch, omitting the snow peas because I didn't have them on hand. This was remarkably good. The sauce is light, peanutty with a hint of sesame. As another plus, it uses ingredients that are usually kept on hand. Best of all though, the entire thing only takes as long as it takes for you to cook the pasta.

Warm Sesame Noodles with Ginger and Snow Peas (from Radically Simple)

225g dried linguine
170g snow peas
1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
2 tbsp chopped ginger
1/4 cup chopped scallions, white and green parts
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tbsp honey
1 large garlic clove, chopped
1/4 tsp Sriracha
3 tbsp julienned fresh cilantro or mint or both

1. Cook pasta according to package directions, adding snow peas for the last 3 minutes of cooking. Drain well.
2. Meanwhile, combine peanut butter, ginger, scallions, soy sauce, oil, rice vinegar, honey, garlic, Sriracha, and 2 tbsp water in a food processor. Process until very smooth.
3. Transfer pasta and snow peas to bowl. Add sauce and toss. Top with herbs and serve.
