Peanut Noodles

This recipe is my go-to on weeknights when I just do NOT want to spend a lot of time cooking dinner. You can completely prep the sauce and topping while bringing your water to a boil and cooking the noodles – it’s that quick. Plus, it makes great leftovers for lunch at work the next day – a win-win!
