This recipe has potential but I found it to be a bit bland. I plant to use just a little bit of sugar and some lime juice the next time I make it to round up the sauce. Submitted by:

Try Barilla Pasta Plus to cut the carbs & add protein. PB2 powdered peanut "butter" makes up into a pretty good Asian peanut sauce. We make a variation of this recipe all the time. (Can't handle Sriracha!) Used Thai Kitchen Red Sweet Chili Sauce instead. Submitted by:

Forget the whole wheat pasta in this. Its too heavy. Don't know why we're so convinced we always have to use whole wheat pasta.....heavy on calories. In this dish the carrots and broccoli provide substantial fiber. Use angel hair or thin spaghetti, lighter as would be found in a Thai dish.... Submitted by:

You can use the Low Sodium Soy Sauce. I'm making this tonight! Submitted by:

MMMMMmmmmmmm....! I was out of sriacha, so I just added some red pepper flakes. If you want to keep the calorie count the same but want to use edamame instead of the chicken, use 1 1/2 cups instead of 2. My only complaint is that the picture does not match the ingredients. Submitted by:

I am totally confused the email says 287 calories..the recipe says 415! likely to do the 287, not likely to do the 415 with that much fact, nothing about that seemed all that great for you. Submitted by:

LANASMOM is correct. The nutrition for the recipe doesn't list peanuts and lists 25 calories from butter which is not in the recipe. Also PENNE PASTA? That's in the nutrition specs but the recipe calls for ww spaghetti???? I know we have to be flexible but we are working hard here to count stuff. Submitted by:

Would be really helpful if the photo bore some relationship to the recipe! Cannot see broccoli or carrot or any protein. But I can see loose peanuts and spring onions neither of which were mentioned! Submitted by:

Use PB2 powdered peanut butter, reconstituted with water, to cut calories and fat. And julienne the carrots, chop the broccoli and add scallions, cut on the diagonal. Submitted by:

I made this for 2 by reducing the pasta to 2 servings. I substituted snap peas for the broccoli & carrots, skipped the additional protein, but added dry roasted peanuts. I also reduced the sriracha sauce to 1/2 tsp but used the 1 tbs peanut butter and 1 tbs soy sauce. The result was yummy! Submitted by:

The sodium calculations appears to be incorrect, i.e. too low. One ounce of soy sauce alone (not accounting for sodium in other ingredients) would make the sodium amount to be about 450 mg. in each serving. Submitted by:

I can't wait to try this. I'm going to add julienne cucumbers for crunch and some chopped peanuts for protein!! Submitted by:

Its a great quick/cheap dish. I used silken tofu for the protein and I sauteed it before mixing it into the noodles so it wasn't so mushy. If I were to do it again (which I am) I would use firm/extra firm tofu instead. Otherwise, great recipe! Submitted by:

I wish the picture was of Chef Meg's recipe! Where are the carrots and broccoli? Where did the actual nuts come from? So does the nutritional value relate to what is pictured or the recipe. For the discussion, 2 Tbsp = 1 fl oz. while 4 Tbsp = 2oz or 1/4 cup. Submitted by:

Sub 1 Tbsp tahini (sesame paste) in lieu of peanut butter. Tahini needs to be thinned with water anyways so you'll get more sauce for fewer calories. Submitted by:

Very good! My husband raved about it and fought me for leftovers. I would probably like it better with almost double the sauce, but then it wouldn't be as low calories ;) Submitted by:

I usually like Chef Meg's recipes, but this one just didn't work for me. It was hard to stir the peanut butter in, and I didn't like the spicy chili sauce I used because I couldn't find sriracha sauce. By the way, I used shrimp as my protein instead of the options shown here. Submitted by:

So quick! So yummy! I used a whole package of noodles, so I tripled the sauce. I also used sweet chili sauce instead of sriracha, and I did 2 parts low sodium soy and 1 part teriyaki. It still had too much soy for my liking, so I'll cut it down again next time. Submitted by:

Check the sodium content - FAST!! 2TBS soy sauce = 1805 mg sodium. Divided by 4 servings = 451 mg....for the soy sauce alone. Submitted by:
