I love to run.  It makes me feel alive.  It also gives me an excuse to carbo-load.  I've become a pasta master!  I've experimented with all different types of post-race pasta dishes.  Thai pasta with peanut sauce is probably one of my favorites because it has a good balance of carbs, which I need for running, protein, and healthy fats.  I usually throw in fresh (sometimes frozen) vegetables to make it even healthier. 

But it's one of those dishes that I don't have a set recipe for.  And after posting about egg drop soup recently, I received several email requests for the Thai pasta with peanut sauce recipe.  It took me about a week of experimenting and retracing my steps before I could write anything definitive down.  Basically, I just add spices until is smells right, and add whatever vegetables we have on hand.  I almost always add pineapple--sometimes fresh, sometimes canned.  I love the way the sweetness of the pineapple contrasts with the spicy sauce and the salty peanuts.  It's a very flavorful dish.

Anyway, it's one of those recipes that you can have fun with.  Experiment with it and make it your own!  And share with me what changes you make, please!  I'm always one for trying new things Smiley

The recipe can be found on my webpage:
