Faked Out Take Out- Peanut Sesame Noodles with Chicken

I love peanut butter.

A long time ago, I watched a Rachel Ray episode where she made take out peanut noodles. I wanted to try it out. But I didn't want to try it out with a cup of peanut butter or whatever amount the recipe called for.
This stuff called PB2 was brought to my attention about a year ago; and I've been waiting to cook with it. The out come ove this dish was peanut butter, salty, crunchy, and full of yum.
I hope you try it out. PB2 can be ordered on the Bell Plantation website.

This recipe is slightly adapted from this one, here
For the peanut noodles;
4 servings Whole wheat pasta; we used thin spaghetti barilla plus brand
1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
4.5 tbsp PB2 powder
1/8 cup white wine vinegar
2 tsp roasted peanut oil

2 tsp crushed garlic
1 tsp granulated sugar
1/4 cup scallions, chopped
1 cup red bell peppers, chopped
1 cup green bell peppers, chopped
1 tbsp sesame seeds
1 can of water chestnuts

Rinse cooked pasta in cold water and drain. 
Toss noodles with the roasted peanut oil. 
Place the ginger, soy, garlic, sugar, and scallions in a food processor. Puree till smooth. Toss with pasta, chestnuts, sesame seeds, and peppers- Refrigerate.
