Cayenne Peanut Butter Pasta with Sundried Tomato and Broccoli

A spicy pasta dish that can be served either hot or cold. The combined flavor of peanut, garlic and hot pepper is unusual and satisfying.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Mince garlic and finely chop peppers. Use more peppers to taste (I use 3 habanero peppers as well).
  2. In a small pan, heat oil over medium heat and cook garlic and peppers for 3-5 minutes. Set aside.
  3. In a small sauce pan, add 1/2 cup of water, rice vinegar, soy sauce and cayenne pepper to taste. Bring to boil.
  4. Remove from heat and add peanut butter (about 1/2 jar). Stir until creamy. It will be a strange consistency as the peanut butter melts, but don't worry it will smooth out.
  5. Stir in cooked garlic and peppers. Set aside.
  6. Boil water for pasta in a large pot. Add pasta and broccoli, cut in spears. Cover. Drain when cooked and return to pot.
  7. Add peanut butter sauce to pasta broccoli mix and sliced sun-dried tomatoes. Mix well.
  8. Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before serving. Also great served cold.

Loved it. Great pasta dish with a little kick.

i really enjoyed this dish... although, the cayenne pepper was a bit much for me. I might have cut the portion in half on that one item. I liked it the next day, also, cold from the fridge.

This is dangerously delicious! I did end up adding a little extra vinegar and soy sauce to the peanutbutter, it was a tad too thick for me.

Pasta and peanuts - a double whammy on the Ancient European diet
i modified the peanut sauce a bit by using vegetable broth instead of water and i added more than called for. would use less peanut butter next time. overall it was a hit! i really liked that my 2 yr old son ate the brocoli since he liked the sauce it was covered in!
