A tasty peanut dressing lightly coats pasta and cabbage in this easy-to-make side dish that's perfect for potlucks or outdoor events. Try sesame oil instead of olive oil if you have some on hand. Laurie Davison - Clearwater, Florida

"Be sure to use "seasoned rice vinegar". I used first..then added seasoned instead..luckily it came out good."

"Wonderful and easy to make. I also used whole wheat pasta and it added even more flavor. I would suggest serving it the same day you toss in the dressing. I made it the night before and the pasta soaked up a lot of the sauce...a little dry but still very tasty :)"
