    smooth peanut butter
  • 1/3  cup 
    chicken broth plus 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4  cup 
    rice vinegar
  • 2   tablespoons 
    light soy sauce
  • 2   tablespoons 
    sugar
  • 2   teaspoons 
    Asian dark sesame oil
  • 2   teaspoons 
    peeled ginger, finely chopped
  • 1/2  teaspoon 
    garlic powder
  • 1/2  teaspoon 
    red pepper flakes
  • 3   tablespoons 
    sesame seeds
  • 2   
    scallions, trimmed and sliced on the diagonal
Directions
1.
Cook linguine in a large pot of lightly salted water following package directions. Drain, and immediately plunge into an ice water bath. Set aside.
2.
Meanwhile, in medium-size saucepan, combine peanut butter, chicken broth and water, rice vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, ginger, garlic powder and red pepper flakes. Whisk until combined. Cook on medium-high heat for about 10 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat.
3.
While sauce simmers, toast sesame seeds in a nonstick skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes, shaking pan to keep seeds from burning.
4.
Drain noodles, discarding ice cubes. Toss with half of the dressing (about 3/4 cup), and allow to soak in for a few minutes. Add remaining dressing and toasted sesame seeds to noodles and toss until well combined. Top with sliced scallions and serve cold. Best if served on the day it is made.
