SO HOW'D IT GO?

Like virtuallyannette, I didn't stick to the list of veggies and used instead what I had on hand. I also added tofu and peanuts on top. But the sauce I followed by the recipe, and it's good! This was super quick to throw together so I'll keep it in my recipe box.

This sauce is excellent!  I should note, however, that if you make a large batch of the sauce (we almost quadrupled it to get rid of two packages of silken tofu we had for a while), you still will want to have a lot of pasta to go with it.  It tastes good, but it can overpower the palate if there is too much on the pasta.

Delicious sauce.  I stole the sauce recipe to use with a different bunch of ingredients (spaghetti, carrot zucchini, a little onion, tofu cubes, peanuts, and hot sauce).  I think this is my new favorite peanut sauce... it just needs a little 'spicy' added to it.  I added a bunch of crushed red pepper.
