MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 20, 2014

The peanut butter sauce is amazing. The lime really brightens up all the flavors. Beware though that this recipe is really a small two person portion. I doubled it for three people. Turned out my son was sick so he didn't eat. My husband and I ate almost the whole thing doubled by ourselves.

Peanut ginger pasta is simple and easy to make and one my family loves to eat. We make it whenever we have all the ingredients and will definitely be keeping this recipe.
