View Full Version : Fettucini with Tofu and Finger-Licking Peanut Sauce
06-19-2002, 10:52 AM
Inspired by everyone's positive reviews, I finally made the Fettucini with Tofu and Finger-Licking Peanut Sauce (CL April '01). It was sooo yummy! DBF and I love Asian food and this was perfect--dare I say, restaurant-quality! I will definitely make it again and again. I'm glad I decided to give tofu another chance. (My first try was terribly mushy!)

Isn't it awesome? It's one of my favorite recipes. I've only tried it with shrimp since we're not tofu fans. Other people have posted that it makes great leftovers cold, and I'll usually eat anything cold, but this one didn't do it for me as a leftover.

Have either of you tried the Chicken and Noodles with Peanut Sauce from CL? It's the only one of the peanut noodle recipes we've tried so far (several times I might add, since we loved it :)) and I'm wondering which recipe people like more? Thanks!

I finallymade this last week after all of the rave reviews. I even made it with tofu and liked it but next time it will definitely be made w/chicken or shrimp.

Let us know if you try it and how the two compare.

Thanks for posting that recipe! I was about to until I saw you had already :)
Please let me know if you try this recipe and how the two compare. I'm interested in the differences between all the peanut/noodle recipes.

Thanks so much for posting it! I'll try to whip up a batch over the weekend and let everyone know the verdict. I think DBF would be more than happy to serve as the official peanut sauce taste tester--he loved the sauce the other night! (He's terribly allergic to nuts and has never before tried pecans, almonds, etc. However, he can eat peanuts b/c they are a legume--and he loooooves the flavor. So, that will give him his nut fix.) -Laura

I made the Fettucine and Tofu with Finger-licking Peanut Sauce last night for supper and thought it was absolutely delicious and really easy to prepare too. I had bought shredded carrots for putting in salads so I used that and ended up using jarred ginger paste (because I had had a really tough day and wanted to make something easy).
A real winner, definite repeater.
Thanks for that recipe!
