Let me just start out by saying I want to bathe in this cold noodle sauce! It is just that good! The recipe was found on Chobani! Yes believe it or not there is yogurt in this sauce and I think it did a great job of making a nice creamy texture! I think I might be obsessed and I think I am going to start putting this sauce on any and everything, no joke! It might have something to do with the fact that it involved peanut butter and how can you not love anything that involves peanut butter (unless allergic of course). But I highly, highly recommend giving this recipe a try, it is also super easy and something you could make ahead. I made my pasta last night so that they could sit in the refrigerator over night to be cold for when I added the sauce, I also threw some Tofu in there for some extra protein!
Happy Meatless Monday!
