This was not my favorite, but the rest of the family enjoyed it. For me, I think it was the beef, I usually like Thai flavored dishes, but we do not usually have ground meat in the recipes.

  • 8 ounces uncooked thin spaghetti
  • 1 lb. lean (at least 80%) ground beef
  • 4 green onions, chopped (¼ cup)
  • 8 ounces fresh pea pods, halved diagonally (about 3 cups)
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into 3x¼x¼-inch thin strips
  • 1 ½ cups chicken broth
  • ¼ teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • ¼ cup chopped salted peanuts
Cook and drain spaghetti as directed on package; cover to keep warm.
Meanwhile, in 12-inch skillet, cook ground beef over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked; drain. Add onions, pea pods and bell pepper. Cook and stir 3 to 4 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender.
In small bowl, mix broth, ground red pepper, salt and cornstarch. Stir into beef and vegetables. Add peanut butter. Cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring frequently, until thick and bubbly. Serve over cooked spaghetti; top with peanuts.

Serves 4
