To this day I love greens sauteed in garlic, ginger, and hot chilis with a bit of broth served over steamed brown rice with soy sauce. Simple, healthy, and so yummy. Cabbage, bok choy, Chinese broccoli, etc

Oh, I love this dish too. I remember when my husband and I were in college with $20 a week to spare, we'd end up eating at a Chinese buffet place nearby and fill up on Spicy peanut noodles. Sometimes I'd be so full to even make it to class, so I'd end up taking a nap instead. Oops.

This is a favorite of ours too. I make a different version of it. I have saved your recipe and will try that.

This sounds wonderful!!!! I have some buckwheat noodles that I will use with this - thanks for the recipe!!!!!!

gobo - do you like spicy foods? If you take some olive oil (say 1 cup) and add about 2 TBS dried chili flakes - heat it, cool it, keep it in a jar. Anytime you want to use it (it can be kept in your cabinets out of sunlight and heat) just shake it or stir it and use it on pasta. You can add some shrimp, or scallops, or slices of London Broil or just top with some fresh Parmesan cheese.
