  1. Hi Cynthia, this recipe for sesame peanut butter noodles sound very yummy and seems to be very easy and quick to make. I do not currently have a microwave, so can I make the sauce on the stove top in a small pot? Or would it be better if I mixed it in a bowl and heated it up over a pot of boiling water so that the homey doesn’t stick and burn? Thanks.

    1. You could heat this on the stove over low heat but I do think that heating it over a pot of boiling water would be best.  Let me know how that works! 

  2. I like peanut butter on my crackers but I have never cooked with it before. These days I am a bit challenged to find interesting and tasty meals to offer my family since that have recently stopped eating a lot of meat. I like this recipe and I have saved it. It seems to be something tasty, being sweet and salt, I could fix for supper and the preparation is short. Thanks again Cynthia for all these lovely suggestions..

    1. I hope you’ll love this quick and easy way to prepare a nutritious meal!  Since you like peanut butter, I think you’ll be hooked!
