Spicy Peanut Noodles

I kindo of made up this recipe from other recipes I read online - I tend to do that, change things up - I don't like to follow rules :)

I have made this a few times on those nights where I really didn't feel like cooking or forgot to take anything out - it is quick and tastes great.

All quantities are estimates - I kind of mix, taste, adjust, add more, taste etc...
This will probably make enough sauce for 2 plates full.

1/2 C - Peanut butter - I use chunky because I like the peanuts in the final dish.
2 T - Soy sauce
hot sauce or cayenne pepper (to your tastes)
1 t - Fish sauce
1 T - Hoisin sauce
1 t - Sesame oil
1 t - chopped garlic ( I use the jarred kind)
1/4 c - water
1-2 - Green onions sliced
Spaghettini cooked (any thin pasta will work)
I sometimes add cooked edamame (1/2 C)- just add it with the pasta water to cook

Get the pasta cooking

In small pot, mix all ingredients (except green onion)
Taste and add ingredients as necessary.
Simmer 5 mins
Add more water to thin if it gets too thick - you want it to coat the spoon, but not be too thick.
Take off the heat and stir in green onions

Drain pasta and mix sauce into pasta.

Eat & enjoy!

This is even better reheated the next day :)
