The sauce is literally exploding with flavor and the noodles just soak up that incredible yumminess.

Did you ever wonder who invented the noodle?  It’s pasta, which makes you think it might have originated in Italy, or Europe.  Or is it China?  Learn more about its amazing history here.

The richness of the creamy peanut butter along with a touch of sweet from the honey, matched against a little bit of heat provided by the chili oil is just the best.

Chinese noodles can be found in the Asian section of most major supermarkets or from Asian food markets.

In a pinch, you could easily substitute spaghetti or really any other kind of noodle. We typically never have a hard time finding at our local supermarket, even in the Lone Star State!

We said it before, but we think it bears repeating: The real star of this dish is the incredible peanut sauce.

    I’m a HUGE fan of peanut sauce, and have previously had couple of go-to recipes. However, this is my new favorite and I’ve shared it with several friends already. The flavors are perfect for my taste. I personally love it cold with Japanese Udon noodles. I would like to know how long it lasts in refrigerator so I can make extra and store it. Thanks so much for the recipe!!

    • Hi Erin!! Woo hoo!! So glad you loved our Chinese Noodles with Peanut Sauce! We love it so much and are so thrilled you loved it, too!! And yes…cold Udon noodles would be amazing! You can make the sauce up to 10 days in advance. You can freeze the sauce for up to 2 months. I’d say the assemble sauce with the noodles will stay good for a few days. The noodles will continue to absorb the sauce, so it will change the texture somewhat, but still darn tasty. Thanks so so much for letting us know and we hope this helps. Let us know if you have any other questions, and do stay in touch!! All the best, Kris & Wesley

    Thanks for this recipe, the sauce is delicious! I divided some out and added a touch of Sriracha for those who prefer a little bite to the sauce, and they really loved it.

    • Thank you so much, Jen!! The touch of Sriracha sounds wonderful! And thank you very much for letting us know. We really, really appreciate that, and please stay in touch!! Best, Kris & Wesley
