Vegetarian Thai Noodles With Spicy Peanut Sauce

Thai food provides a distinctive balance among sweet, sour, spicy, and salty ingredients, and these noodles are smothered in a sauce that highlights all four.  Don’t let the word spicy intimidate you; this recipe features subtle heat.  If you want more heat in your noodles, add ¼ teaspoon of red pepper flakes to the sauce.
