noodles + peanut butter + ketchup

Ever read the recipes atop your jar of peanut butter? I do! Whereas I am NEVER gonna make peanut butter pork chops* or a peanut butter smoothie*, I like Thai peanut noodles, for example, and here is a groovy variation that I have been making daily since first trying it early this week. Each time it is easy, perfect, and ...I like it better than mac and cheese!*
*= I don't eat meat or dairy, but use substitute cheese sometimes, like here

from Smuckers natural PB: easy peanut pasta twists
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup warm water
tablspoon soy sauce
1/2 cup ketchup, although chili sauce and BBQ sauce = delish variations
teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 tablespoon rice vinegar, although I use red wine vinegar
1 pound pasta, like corkscrews
1/2 cup diced red pepper
shredded cheddar cheese (optional)*

1. combine pb, H2O, ketchup, soy sauce, garlic powder, and vinegar in bowl, whisk nice and smooth
2. cook and drain pasta
3. toss pasta and sauce and diced pepper, top each plate with cheese*, yum!

You lost my vote when it came to involving ketchup in this whole thing. Yech. The ONLY time I will use any ketchup is perhaps on a hamburger.
