  1. Heat vegetable oil in a large pan or skillet over medium heat; saute onion, garlic, and red pepper flakes until garlic is slightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Add shrimp; cook and stir until shrimp begin to firm, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir tomatoes, peanut butter, and red chile paste into shrimp mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until sauce thickens, about 20 minutes.
  3. Place noodles in a large bowl and cover with hot water. Set aside until noodles are softened, about 15 minutes. Drain and rinse thoroughly.
  4. Divide noodles among serving plates; top with shrimp sauce. Garnish each serving with cilantro, yogurt, and peanuts.

I was searching for a recipe that used peanut butter and had an Allstar suggest this recipe. I elected to use sesame oil, and only used 1/2 tsp of the chile paste. These two are the only changes...

This recipe was easy and an elegant meal to serve at a dinner party. The garnish of cilantro, yogurt and peanuts was especially tasty and pleasing to the eyes!

It was pretty good. I think it needs more flavors. I think next time I'll add more peanut butter.
