Do you see the deliciousness above?  That was our dinner tonight.  Man oh man was this good!!!  It should be called “Comfort Food” instead of “Peanut Noodles”.  SOOO GOOD!!

I got the original of this recipe from Sunday Baker, and boy did she put together a great recipe!!  While I was upstairs with the baby, my sweet husband whipped this up for us. 

We both absolutely loved it, and it’s going into my permanent “Winners” file. 🙂  Plus, the best part: 1/4 of this recipe makes a nice plate full of pasta!
