Sweet Chili-Lime Noodles with Vegetables1 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 again...so I could have a picture for Tina...and some lunch!!)
