The fun thing about being in charge of the food around here is that I can cook whatever I want to eat! Pasta with vegetables mixed with a peanut dressing. That's what i wanted.

As I mentioned earlier, we had company over a couple of weeks ago (our good friends from Texas) and when I host any guests, I do my meal planning before they arrive so I'm not buying food or trying to figure out what we should be eating. last minute.

This is especially important when there are a lot of little ones in the house: 8 children to be exact, 7 years old or younger (4 for each of us), so it is always a little difficult to find food that everyone likes. I think that throwing a fruit salad or a crusty bread makes the little ones happy.

One of the nights we made Grilled Copper River Salmon that I made with a simple Asian marinade. It pairs perfectly with this Asian noodle salad.

I just had the peas from my CSA box and had everything else on hand. I used this gluten-free pasta that I love, but you can use any pasta the size of a spaghetti.

This dish feeds a crowd, but you can always cut it in half if you're cooking for 1 or 2. I have to admit, I made the full portion last week and my husband and I got about 8 servings (yes, I basically ate it for days). Fortunately, this pasta is great for leftovers, but if you use gluten-free noodles, you may need to heat it up a bit the next day to soften the noodles, as their texture is different from normal pasta after refrigerating them.

Enjoy this as a garnish or main dish; I think it pairs well with fish, chicken, or shrimp. Cover this baby with Sriracha if he likes a little warmth and extra coriander if you like. Delicious!
