Spicy Peanut Sauce Noodles is a simplified version of our popular Peanut Sauce Udon Noodles…yes yes, we have a major naming problem. 🙂
Anyways, the ingredients are simple and easy to assemble, and the procedure is really straightforward – prepare the peanut sauce, cook the noodles, mix them together, garnish, and serve.
