Thanks again to my husband for writing on my blog last week sharing his steaks on the grill!

What is one of your favorite meals? My husband loves it when I make Chinese. I make a quick and easy stir fry and a Chinese pasta with a peanut butter chili sauce. I once tried a different sauce to try something different, but it just wasn’t the same. So now I stick with my peanut butter chili sauce whenever I’m making Chinese with pasta.

When I started making this Chinese pasta, I used a recipe I found in a magazine. I’ve used the piece of paper from the magazine so much that it is slightly wrinkled and has some splashes of food on it.

When I make my peanut butter chili sauce, I add couple other ingredients to make the sauce my own. I love adding sweet chili sauce and Chinese mustard to add a little kick to the pasta. Tip: A small amount of Chinese mustard goes a long way.

If you have kids who doesn’t like spicy food, dish their Chinese up before you add the sweet chili sauce and Chinese mustard. That is what I do for my girls, so the pasta isn’t spicy.

Here is my recipe for Chinese with peanut butter chili sauce.

I love ravioli. One of the great things about ravioli is that they are all good; no matter the flavor. Ravioli can be filled be cheese or mushrooms. I love them both.

So for this recipe you can use whatever filling you want. It’s up to you. And if you want to use tortellini, you can do that too. This recipe will taste good both ways.

I found a recipe on Better Crocker for a tomato Alfredo sauce and I tweaked it into my own. I use my own spaghetti sauce in this recipe.
