I used to hate cooking. My Grandmother used to lament that NO MAN would ever want to marry me if I did not learn how to cook. Well, Grandmother, lament no more.

Peanut Noodles & Tofu
Sounds kind of funky, doesn't it?
That's why I had to try it!
INGREDIENTS: 4 tbs. natural peanut butter 4 tbs. hoisin sauce 1 tbs. brown sugar 1 tbs. light soy sauce t tsp. rice vinegar 8 oz. spaghetti (whole wheat spaghetti is healthier) 1 red bell peppers, cut into strips 1 green bell pepper, cut into strips 1 container of tofu (firm stays cubed, but I prefer the taste of medium. Silken/soft will be crushed/crumble, so don't use that.)
1. Cook the pasta as directed on the box. 2. Combine the peanut butter, hoisin sauce, brown sugar, and vinegar in a bowl. 3. Two minutes before draining the spaghetti, toss in the red and green bell peppers. 4. A minute later, toss in the tofu. 5. Drain the pasta. 6. Mix with the sauce.
I ADORE shrimp and mushroom, so I sauted some with a little bit of the red & green bell peppers and the tofu and topped my pasta with it.
