Aromatic Noodles with Peanut Lime Sauce

3/4 pound spinach or whole-wheat linguine
2 cups broccoli florets
2 cups snow peas, trimmed
2 cups sugar snap peas, trimmed
1/2 cup natural creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
3/4 inch fresh ginger, finely grated
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cup shelled unsalted peanuts

  • Cook the pasta in a large pot of water according to the directions on the package. Drain and rinse with cold water.
  • While the pasta is cooking put the broccoli in a steamer basket over a large pot of boiling water and steam it for 3 minutes.
  • Add the snow peas and sugar snap peas and steam for 2 minutes more.
  • Toast the peanuts in a dry pan over a medium heat until they become fragrant, about 3 minutes. Set them aside to cool.
  • Make the sauce by pureeing the peanut butter, soy sauce, water, vinegar, lime juice, ginger, sugar and red pepper flakes in a food processor or blender until smooth.
  • Right before serving, toss the pasta with 3/4 cup of the peanut sauce.
  • Drizzle the remaining sauce over the vegetables. Coarsely chop the peanuts, sprinkle them on top and serve.
