Notes

  1. Note: there will be lots of sauce in this dish, but the noodles will absorb most of the sauce.
  2. Store leftover peanut noodles in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3-4 days. To reheat, just pop it in the microwave or back in a skillet/wok until heated through.
  3. If you want to keep this dish longer, you can freeze it in an airtight container - just keep in mind it may lose its quality and is best served fresh.
