Thai Style Shrimp and Noodles

Check out the past Cooking for One posts if you missed any of them. Marie Claire continues with more great ideas for cooking with a recipe for Thai Style Shrimp and Noodles.

Thai-Style Shrimp and Noodles
1/4 cup peanut butter
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon ginger, grated
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 pound spaghetti or linguine
20 frozen shrimp
1 cup frozen vegetables (I like to buy the stir-fry mix)
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, minced

In a small bowl, combine peanut butter, soy sauce, ginger, lemon juice, garlic powder and red pepper flakes. Set aside.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook pasta about 7 minutes. Add frozen shrimp and cook an additional 2 minutes then add vegetables and cook 2 minutes. Drain.

In a large bowl, toss pasta mixture with peanut butter sauce and cilantro.
