Peanut noodles are a favorite take out dish around my house but after checking the nutritional info and learning that most clock in at around 900 calories per serving, I knew there had to be a healthier at home version. I experimented for a while until I decided on this dish using soba noodles and PB2 to really cut down on the calories.
