Thai Chickpea Pasta

I stumbled onto a really yummy and incredibly simple Thai Chicken Pasta dish a few months ago and just new it would make the perfect chickpea dish. So today I'm sharing Thai Chickpea Pasta
over at Onceamonthmom.com. It's going to be part of a fantastic April menu that includes Chocolate Chip Quinoa Muffins {Vegetarian}, Quinoa and Kale Mini Quiches {Vegetarian}, and Chickpea Brown Rice Burgers {Vegan}

The Results
The kids and I, and my mom, loved this dish. The kids ate theirs separately (noodles with sauce on the side) because they're on this kick about eating the ingredients separately. I was pleasantly surprised about the taste of the multi-grain noodles. I haven't tried whole wheat or multi-grain noodles in a long time (I held a long grudge against their flavor). They were really tasty! And the peanut butter and salsa sauce was rich and flavorful. It tasted nearly as good as the more complicated Thai Peanut Sauces (see Thai Chickpea Pizza) and took about a tenth of the time and effort.

  2. I came to this link from OAMM. I've tried looking all over your site but I'm just not seeing the actual recipe for this. Can you please point me in the right direction?
    Thanks!
