One Pot Thai Peanut Pasta

Thai inspired pasta that will leave you with only one dish to clean! One Pot Thai Peanut Pasta is what I had for dinner this week! I just love pad thai, but I wasn’t quite ready to dive into the real thing. So I decided to take an interpretive (and really easy) route instead.

Ingredients:

Thai Peanut Pasta:

  • 12 oz. linguine
  • 4 C. vegetable broth
  • 1/4 C. water
  • 4 cloves garlic diced
  • 2 inches of a ginger root sliced into 1/4 inch slices (keep them large b/c you’ll need to find them again)
  • 1 large carrot peeled and cut in 1/4 inch by 2 inch pieces
  • 1 red bell pepper cut in 1/4 inch by 2 inch pieces
  • 4 green onions sliced in half lengthwise and then in 2 inch pieces
  • 1 C. roasted salted peanuts
  • 2 Tbsp. peanut butter smooth or crunchy will work
  • 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes more if you want to really spicy
  • 1 Tbsp. soy sauce and/or fish sauce, if desired
  • 1Tbsp. tamarind paste This is from the original recipe, I couldn’t find it so I left it out

After Pasta Cooks:

  • juice of two limes
  • 1 C. cilantro chopped
  • chopped peanuts to garnish

Instructions:

  1. Place all pasta ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes or until the pasta is al dente.
  3. Cover during cooking if you want to keep more liquid.
