Ingredients

  • 6 ounces uncooked whole wheat spaghetti
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 package (10 ounces) fresh sugar snap peas, trimmed and cut diagonally into thin strips

  • 1 cup Thai peanut sauce
  • 1 medium cucumber, halved lengthwise, seeded and sliced diagonally
  • Chopped fresh cilantro, optional

Directions

Cook spaghetti according to package directions; drain.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add snap peas and carrots; stir-fry 6-8 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add chicken, peanut sauce and spaghetti; heat through, tossing to combine.
Transfer to a serving plate. Top with cucumber and, if desired, cilantro. Yield: 6 servings
Health Tip: Fruits are typically associated with the antioxidant vitamin C, but sugar snap peas are an excellent source as well.
