Peanutty Noodles

This dish comes together quickly when one person prepares the sauce while another sautes the vegetables. Break the pasta in half before[ cooking to make serving easier. These noodles complement the pork perfectly, but they also become their own main dish when you add cooked shrimp or chicken.]
