Peanut Butter Pasta

Sadly it's back to dorm life and I can no longer cook delicious meals all the time. Here is a quick whole wheat pasta dish that I made this summer. It was so good. Basically it is a thai peanut pasta, but it is my made-up version... So it's more "peanut buttery" and less "thai peanutty."

Peanut Butter Pasta:
1/2 c. Whole Wheat Spaghetti (cooked)
1 tbsp. Peanut Butter
2 tsp. Sesame Oil
1 Green Onion (chopped)
2 tbsp. Chopped Fresh Cilantro

Melt the peanut butter in the microwave for about 30 seconds, or until it becomes runny. Mix in the sesame oil, and set aside. Chop up the cooked whole wheat spaghetti and stir in the green onion and cilantro. Pour over the peanut butter sauce and mix it all together until evenly combined. Enjoy!

This makes me miss summer break... and good, healthy food...

Leg lift later today!! And I need to do 4x800 sprints. Thank goodness it is short distance today, after a long ten mile run on Sunday.


  1. I made this for lunch today, using the leftover whole wheat pasta from last night's spaghetti. I didn't have green onion for it, but I did add steamed carrots and broccoli. So good. Thanks, Lauren!

  2. Such a great idea to put peanut butter in pasta! Never tried, but must give it a go as soon as possible :)
