I need a recipe or link to a recipe that I know is floating around DC for years

I forgot whose recipe it was, and the exact name but, My son had a pasta dish at his gf's house which primarily consisted of pasta with sauce made out of peanut butter, rice wine, soy sauce ( and im sure a few other things).

Over the years, I know there is a similar recipe that everyone liked here that was posted, but for the life of me can't remember.

But im sure some of you wise folks will steer me in the right direction,

Thanks in advance

I think you're referring to the Dragon Lady's Sesame Noodles.

I think you're right GG, although Dragon Lady's Sesame Noodles has no peanut butter or I wouldn't love the stuff like I do.
Gotta have some again soon.

I think you're right, thanks!.

I usually make it using sesame paste
My Aunt makes it with peanut butter
And apparently, my sons gf's mom does the same.
But I did remember this recipe floating around. It always makes its appearance periodically.

In my search I found a recipe from TenSpeed which actually sounds very similar to what my sone described .

Sesame Peanut Noodles
Sesame Peanut Noodles

10 oz. angel hair pasta

2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1/2 cups scallions, chopped

While the Dragon Lady Sesame Noodle recipe may be the one you were thinking of, it does NOT contain peanut butter.

I figured that out after I read it. I never made it and just had a vague memory of the ingredients. And when I remember what my aunt had done in the past, I assumed there would be some similarities. But at least now I don't have to go to sleep tossing and turning trying to figure out which recipe I was thinking about.

That also sounds like a good recipe. I can't abide peanut butter though so I'd use sesame paste or oil. I like the idea of cabbage and cucumber.

There are a lot of versions of this posted on the web. The name is usually something like cold sesame noodles, pasta in Thai peanut sauce, etc. A quick google search will give you some ideas of things to try

Being in Noo Yawk, you might find this article to be of interest.
