Sweet Chili-Lime Noodles with Vegetables

Sweet Chili-Lime Noodles with Vegetables
1 cup cooked whole grain spaghetti ( 2 oz. uncooked)
2 cups shredded bok choy (or shredded coleslaw mix or shredded cabbage may be substituted*I used broccoli slaw.*)
1/4 cup grated carrot (if you use broccoli slaw, it has carrots in it)
1/4 cup fresh snow peas
1/4 cup shredded cooked chicken (optional)
2 T bottled sweet chili sauce
2 tsp. lime juice
1/2 tsp. fresh grated ginger
1/4 tsp. minced garlic

Combine chili sauce, lime juice, ginger, and garlic to make Sweet Chili Lime Sauce.

Place pasta, next 4 ingredients (and chicken if desired), and sauce in medium sized microwave-safe dish. Cover with lid and shake to combine.

Lift 1 corner of lid to allow steam to escape. Microwave on high 2 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

*I cooked the spaghetti and cominbed everything without cooking. The spaghetti noodles contrasted nicely with the cool crunch of the broccoli slaw. I loved the sauce and made a little extra!

**My second helping I added a spoon of peanut butter and warmed it up to melt the peanut butter. That was yummy too!

(I made it I could have a picture for Tina...and some lunch!!)

  1. Is it as yummy as it sounds? I need a picture, did you take one?

  2. No pics, sorry! Russ was at the TX baseball game with my camera and I gobbled it up while he was gone.

  3. I can't BELIEVE you made it AGAIN!!! Thank you. That's a good sign that it's well worth the cooking. This ones going in "tha book". :)
