This is one of my top 5 dinners!

Peanut Butter Pasta – Serves 2

First 8 ingredients:
¼ cup smooth peanut butter
3 TBSP soy sauce
1 TBSP red wine vinegar
1 TBSP sesame oil
2 Tsp olive oil
1 Tsp sugar
1 clove crushed garlic
¼ to ½ Tsp crushed red pepper flakes

Remaining ingredients:
4 oz angel hair pasta
8 oz fresh broccoli chopped into bite-sized pieces
¼ cup chopped onions
3 oz packet of chicken

At home, before the trip, combine the first 8 ingredients in a blender and liquefy. Put in an airtight plastic bag.

Chop the broccoli and onion and place in an airtight plastic bag along with the bag containing the first 8 ingredients.

In camp, put 2 cups water in a pot and add the pasta as the water comes to a boil.
Boil, and after 3 minutes, add the broccoli and onions.

Continue boiling, cooking pasta to taste with the broccoli and onion, about another 3 to 5 minutes.

Drain, reserving a shy ½ cup of the liquid.

Add the reserved liquid to the blended first 8 ingredients. Stir and add the chicken and the sauce to the pasta and vegetables.

Note: You can add some ginger to the first 8 ingredients for additional flavor.
