Directions

  1. Cook the pasta according to package directions. Reserve 2-3 tbsp of the cooking water. Drain pasta and set aside.
  2. In a wok or large saute pan, heat oil. Add 1 garlic clove and ginger. Allow to cook for about 1-2 minutes or until fragrant
  3. Add vegetables to pan and saute for several minutes until bok choy is wilted and vegetables are beginning to soften. Season with kosher salt and ground pepper.
  4. While vegetables and pasta are cooking, combine 1 clove garlic, peanut butter, soy sauce, fish sauce, sesame oil and chicken broth in a small bowl. Whisk together until smooth. Add pasta water as needed to reach a honey-like consistency.
  5. Add pasta and peanut sauce to pan. Stir to evenly coat vegetables and pasta with the sauce.Top with fresh cilantro, chopped peanuts and scallions.
