QUICK AND EASY PEANUT NOODLES — These quick and simple peanut noodles come together in less than 30 minutes and taste amazing. Serve toppings on the side and let everyone add their own!
There’s nothing I love more than a quick and easy recipe that the whole family loves, and these Quick and Easy Peanut Noodles are an all-time favorite.
Linguine noodles are tossed in a homemade peanut sauce made with peanut butter, honey, Sriracha, soy sauce and freshly grated ginger for amazing flavor.
My youngest loves these noodles with just the sauce, but I like to serve chopped cilantro, sliced green onions, chopped peanuts and lime wedges on the side and let everyone add the flavors they like.
These noodles also make for amazing leftovers, if you’re lucky enough to have any. My boys usually devour everything in one sitting, so sometimes I hide away an extra portion in the back of the refrigerator to enjoy for lunch the next day.
This is also a great, economical meal for older kids who live away from home. My older boys make a version of this often because it’s so simple and inexpensive.
They like a little more heat than I do, so they usually double the Sriracha sauce. You can also serve extra Sriracha on the side and let everyone add as much, or as little, as they like.
Besides being delicious, this dish comes together in about 20 minutes, which makes it perfect for busy week nights. You can’t even get take-out that fast!
My whole family loves this simple noodle dish. Even my husband, who claims he doesn’t care for peanut butter.
So if you’re looking to add some excitement to your dinner plan, be sure to give these Quick and Easy Peanut Noodles a try!

Tips for Cooking Pasta
Use a big pot: Cook pasta in a large pot–big enough to hold 6 quarts of water per pound of pasta.
Salt: Generously season your cooking water with salt. A few teaspoons per quart of water is a good place to start. Although a little more or less is fine, depending on your preference.
Don’t overcook: Boil your pasta to until it is al dente, which means it’s cooked, but still a bit chewy. You’ll want to test your pasta for flavor and texture every 20 seconds or so during the last few minutes of cooking.
If you’ll continue cooking the pasta in a sauce, or baking it in the oven, remove the pot from the heat a few minutes before it’s done to prevent overcooking.
