Asian Beef and Noodles

So I'd planned to go out for a cheeseburger with my friends, but the dinner I made foiled my plans.  It was so. good.  Plus, it took less than a half hour to make.  Double bonus!  Don't worry.  I still went out with my friends.  Just ended up having a milkshake instead.

Here it is:
8 oz. uncooked whole wheat spaghetti
2 cups fresh sugar snap peas
1 cup julienne-cut red pepper
1/2 cup Catalina dressing
1 lb. beef top sirloin steak, cut into thin strips (We have these from buying a quarter cow a while back.)
2 T creamy peanut butter
2 T soy sauce (or Bragg's Liquid Aminos)
1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
1/2 cup dry roasted peanuts

1. Cook spaghetti as package directs and add peas and red pepper during the last 2 minutes of boiling.
2.  Heat Catalina in skillet then cook beef in dressing for 8-10 minutes or until meat is fully cooked.
3. Add peanut butter and soy sauce and cook until thickened (about 2 minutes).
4. Stir in spaghetti and vegetables including green onions.  Sprinkle peanuts on top.

This was lick-your-plate good!  I adapted this recipe from a Simple and Delicious one and was really impressed.  Plus, all the ingredients on this list are things I keep in the house (Okay, I had to go buy some peanuts.), but I try to just add recipes that don't require a lot of new supplies in the house.

I would post a picture, but... well.... We ate it really fast.  And last night was sandbox building night.

Hope someone else will get to enjoy our yummy, quick dinner discovery!
