Great meal

This pasta salad was as quick as it promised, and blends a great variety of flavors. I substituted the 1 T of chili garlic sauce for 1 T (so 3 total) of the sweet chili sauce and just added some chopped garlic. Leftovers stay flavorful!

WONDERFUL!!!

My husband and I LOVED this recipe. It was even better the second day. My kids didn't like it to much, but their not asian fans. I did make a few changes the second time I made it. I put less peanut butter, about 1/3 C, 2T of sweet chili sauce and 3T of chili garlic sauce. I added watercress nuts and didn't add the green onions (I don't like them) ** I did double the sauce and used a hole box of pasta (16 ozs). It's saucy and really great. It needs more sauce if you let it set over night. ** I took it to my daughters school for a teachers lunchen and they all want to recipe now.
