sesame noodles... 25 minutes

the goods:

12 ounces whole wheat spaghetti
1 bunch broccoli, cut into florets
2 red bell peppers (ribs and seeds removed), thinly sliced
1 large onion, halved and thinly sliced
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoons dark-brown sugar
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 to 1 teaspoon red-pepper flakes

In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook spaghetti 3 minutes less than al dente. Add broccoli, bell peppers, and onion. Cook until pasta is done and vegetables are tender, 3 to 5 minutes more. Drain pasta and vegetables.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together peanut butter, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, oil, garlic, and red-pepper flakes. Add hot pasta and vegetables; toss to coat. Serve!
