Asian-Style Pork and Noodles

This is a simple, quick recipe that I find to be pretty kid friendly---something about adding peanut butter that the kiddos just love. Easy to turn the heat up or down on this according to your family's tastes.

Asian-Style Pork and Noodles

1lb. ground pork (thank you Baker's Mgr's Special) .99

2 carrots, finely chopped .20

½ onion, finely chopped .15

3 cloves of garlic, minced .10

½ cup chicken broth .00 (free from my stash of homemade stock cubes)

1 ½T minced fresh ginger .15

3T soy sauce .05

3T peanut butter .20 (we make our own-yum!)

1T honey .15

1T bottled lime juice .05

1tsp chili paste .10

½ lb. spaghetti .50

Chopped green onion for garnish .15

Cook spaghetti according to directions. In medium skillet, brown ground pork. Add onion, carrot and garlic, and cook 5 minutes. Add broth and simmer for 5 minutes. Add remaining ingredients until smooth and heated through. Drain pasta, add to skillet and toss to coat. Garnish with green onion.

$2.80 serve with frozen broccoli (1.00) and some grapes (1.00)

Total for the meal- $4.80!
