Asian Chicken & Veggie Pasta

We had the best meal on Monday night. All of the boys thought it was delish; some even said it tasted like restaurant food. Princess Pat didn't want to try it...she has become a pasta purist and won't eat anything that doesn't look like Italian food. She's two, so she doesn't have a lot of clout in the food voting department. Asian Chicken & Vegetable Pasta
8oz spaghetti or yaki soba noodles
1 lb cut veggies of your choice (carrots, asparagus, summer squash, onion, celery, etc)
2 cloves minced garlic
1 lb cubed chicken
2 Tbls oil
1 tsp ground ginger
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
3 Tbls rice vinegar
3 Tbls soy sauce
2 Tbls brown sugar
1/8 tsp crushed red pepper
Boil water in a big stock pot. Add pasta and (this was a new and exciting way to cook!) the harder veggies (carrots, asparagus, celery) to the water and boil. Saute the chicken in oil. When the chicken is just about done, add the garlic and softer veggies (squash, cabbage, spinach). In a sauce pan combine the remaining ingredients. Stir and cook until peanut butter is melted and well combined. Drain pasta and veggies, add chicken mixture and sauce. Stir to combine.

That sounds great. We aren't giving my son peanuts yet, but maybe I will make it some night and give him something else!
